Fun Facts

  • The Fourth Symphony represents a lighter, more relaxed version of Beethoven’s music, as it falls in between his bold Third (Eroica) and Fifth Symphonies. Robert Schumann described the Fourth as “a slender Greek maiden between two Nordic giants.”
  • Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach was Johann’s son and held a 30-year job as harpsichord accompanist to King Frederick the Great.

About This Concert

In his Concerto for Orchestra, Bartók upends the concerto form by treating each section of instruments in a soloistic and virtuosic manner. The mood progresses from stern to spooky to life-affirming, with two witty scherzos scattered into the mix. Acclaimed American conductor Karina Canellakis leads the Orchestra in a vivacious performance that includes Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, Ravel’s jazz-infused Piano Concerto and Lineage by Zosha Di Castri.
