Mozart’s Romantic Side: Piano Concerto No. 20

Mozart’s D minor Concerto marks the first of six staggering masterpieces for piano and orchestra written between 1785 and 1786. His stormiest concerto - and an omen of the Romantic Era - was regarded by the 19th-century masters as Beethoven-ish, the highest praise possible at the time. It’s a perfect pairing with Beethoven’s First Symphony, a work in which the first few moments already foreshadow that this giant was about to change everything. Van Cliburn Piano Competition-medalist Daniel Hsu joins Courtney Lewis and the Symphony in this spectacular season opener.
