Music Director Peter Oundjian begins a cycle of all five of Beethoven’s piano concertos, each performed by the award-winning Jan Lisiecki, whom Oundjian calls “one of the greatest piano talents of all time.” Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto was written as a showpiece for the composer as the aspiring pianist was first making a name for himself in Vienna. The high-spirited Third Piano Concerto was not complete when Beethoven first performed it—his panicked page-turner later recalled many empty pages strewn with “a few Egyptian hieroglyphs wholly unintelligible to me.” Beethoven played the solos mostly from memory. This program also begins a three-concert exploration of Vaughn Williams’ most enduring works in celebration of the composer’s 150th birthday, beginning with his profoundly moving Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis for string orchestra.
