BEETHOVEN: “Symphony of Symphonies”
French pianist Philippe Bianconi has been described as an artist whose playing is “always close to the soul of the music, filling the space with poetry and life,” (The Washington Post) and who offers “an extraordinary exhibition of musicianship, technical control and good taste.” (The Times of London).
In celebration of the 250th Anniversary of Beethoven’s birth in 2020, the FSO presents highlights from his most popular symphonies including Symphony No. 5, No. 7, and No.3 “Eroica”.
