About

Alexander von Zemlinsky's Lyric Symphony, with text taken from the writings of India's Rabindranath Tagore, winner of the 1913 Nobel Prize for Literature, receives its first performances by the NSO. Baritone Matthias Goerne and soprano Twyla Robinson sing the elegant and spiritual poetry of Tagore in German translation. Also on the program is Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23, played by Christoph Eschenbach and conducted from the piano.

Program Update (as of 02/02/11): For these concerts, the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1 has been replaced by Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23. At the time Maestro Eschenbach had set aside to bring the Beethoven Piano Concerto back into his repertoire, he was being treated for severe tendonitis. This Mozart concerto is a work he always keeps current.
