FABIO LUISI conducts FRANCESCO PIEMONTESI piano LIDO PIMIENTA vocals ANGÉLICA NEGRÓN "Arquitecta" | World Premiere BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 3 BRAHMS Symphony No. 4 This weekend, Fabio Luisi and the DSO bring out one of the first works in which Beethoven takes on the heroic ideal, shaking his fist at the world, with his Piano Concerto No. 3 performed by pianist Francecso Piemontesi. We journey from the youthful optimism of Brahms's First Piano Concerto (performed earlier in the season) to his Fourth Symphony, filled with grandeur as he presents his final essay in symphonic form. Yet, like all great tragedies, the Fourth is cathartic which might explain the popularity of his dark, troubling last symphonic work. To open, DSO's Composer-in-Residence Angélica Negrón offers the world premiere of her work for voice and orchestra, with Canadian Columbian singer, curator and interdisciplinary artist Lido Pimienta.
