PRE-CONCERT LECTURE

A night of the triumphant and sublime

Experience Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony - an immense and soul-stirring exposition on triumph over tragedy - alongside his brilliant “Emperor Concerto” on the instruments of the composer’s time played with vitality by Mercury and hear works renewed - fresh, invigorating, remarkable.  Joining Mercury is Alon Goldstein, piano, who brings, “A beautifully balanced approach to the score, refined yet impetuous, noble yet spirited" (New York Times). 

This concert is made possible in part by the Houston Endowment and the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.
