J. Wolfe Fountain of Youth
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 3
Brahms Symphony No. 1
Louis Langrée, conductor
Stephen Hough, piano
With its grand orchestration and stormy, romantic movements, Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto is a vital precursor to the composer’s “heroic” middle-period style, which the NSO explores later this season in Beethoven at 250. Stephen Hougheffortlessly conquers the concerto, which demands remarkable mastery and range of color from the soloist. Brahms’s radiant First Symphony and Julia Wolfe’s Fountain of Youth complete the program, making a thrilling NSO debut for conductor Louis Langrée, Music Director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
Organ Postlude: the Apr. 16 is performance is followed by a mini-recital by Russell Weismann on the Kennedy Center Concert Hall’s Rubenstein Family Organ, free with purchase of concert ticket.
