LAWRENCE LOH | conductor
JON NAKAMATSU | piano

PROGRAM:
BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto, No.5, op.73, E-flat major (Emperor)
SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony No. 10

Two revolutionary composers, both as musicians and as humanists. Beethoven’s Emperor Piano Concerto is performed by Syracuse-favorite Jon Nakamatsu. Written after the death of Stalin, Shostakovich’s pulsing and militaristic Symphony No. 10 is sometimes referred to as an “optimistic tragedy.”
