About

Passionate lyricism fills the air and melodies soar in some of the most heartfelt music ever written. Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto is perhaps his most gentle and lyrical piece. Its premiere was also the composer’s final appearance as a concerto soloist — his encroaching deafness ensured that he would never again play with an orchestra. Piotr Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique Symphony shows the composer at his most vulnerable and emotional, with heartfelt pathos composed into every note.

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