Andris Nelsons conducts Augusta Read Thomas and Beethoven featuring pianist Mitsuko Uchida

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

One of the finest pianists of the Classical repertoire, Mitsuko Uchida joins Andris Nelsons and the BSO for two very different Beethoven concertos, the start of a multi-season Beethoven collaboration with Ms. Uchida. The Concerto No. 2 was actually composed before the work we know as No. 1, but Beethoven published them in reverse order. Completed by about 1795, the piece is strongly rooted in the Viennese style of Mozart. The Concerto No. 4 dates from a decade later. It opens, unusually, with a few bars of solo piano, a chordal passage that introduces the work’s overall lyrical and elegant character. Opening these concerts is the American premiere of Augusta Read Thomas' Dance Foldings.
