Beethoven Emperor Concerto

Beethoven’s “Emperor”—the most eloquent of all piano concertos, and a bold declaration of artistic and moral freedom—comes vibrantly to life in the adept hands of pianist Yefim Bronfman. Conductor Osmo Vänskä leads the TSO in American maverick composer Charles Ives’s Second Symphony, a highly original work fusing European symphonic form with popular American tunes. (Pictured: Yefim Bronfman, piano)
