About

The Beethoven Festival begins! Leonore’s tale of love and liberty bursts onto the stage with its impassioned drama. Seven-time Grammy®-winning pianist Emanuel Ax then joins us to reveal the surprising delight of Ludwig van Beethoven’s first (published) piano concerto, a youthful showpiece that dazzled Viennese audiences. Edo de Waart and the San Diego Symphony bring our opening portrait of Beethoven to a grand finale with the joyous wit of the composer’s Fourth Symphony.

This concert is part of the San Diego Symphony's season-long celebration of Beethoven's 250th birthday.
