Beethoven's Emperor Concerto and Symphony No. 5
Virginia Symphony Orchestra
JoAnn Falletta, Conductor
Olga Kern, piano
"One of the finest conductors of her generation." - The New York Times
"Falletta conducted with a controlled frenzy worthy of Bernstein. Falletta has won conducting awards named for Toscanini, Walter and Stokowski. That seems appropriate as her podium draws on the legacy of all three--Toscanini's tight control over ensemble, Walter's affectionate balancing of inner voices, and Stokowski's gutsy showmanship." - The Washington Post
The Virginia Arts Festival's celebration of Beethoven's 250th Birthday is also a grand farewell to a beloved member of the region's music community--an emotional event you won't want to miss. Marking her final season as Music Director of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, JoAnn Falletta will lead the orchestra in one of classical music's most recognized works, Beethoven's monumental Fifth Symphony.
In her debut performance with the VSO, Van Cliburn Gold Medalist Olga Kern brings her vivid stage presence, brilliant musicianship, and extraordinary technique to a performance of Beethoven's breathtaking Emperor Concerto.
