Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4

Bernstein Chichester Psalms

Beethoven Choral Fantasy

 

Beethoven 4/4.  We are now well into our four-season exploration of what makes Beethoven such a musical giant, and we look forward to a major celebration of his life and works in honor of his birthday in 2020.  

This concert will take you through two brilliant contributions to the piano literature from Beethoven: Concerto No. 4 and the Choral Fantasy.  Beloved local piano virtuoso Alec Chien takes the solo spotlight in both works.  The Fourth Concerto marks the heroic nature of his style, perfectly contrasting an introspective and expressive voice.  The Choral Fantasy features a full chorus and six soloists along with solo piano and foreshadows the transformational 9th Symphony.  Between these two works, we will perform Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms with rich melodies and catchy rhythms, all in the service of the evocative prayer-poetry of King David from the Book of Psalms.
