Helvi Leiviskä – Symphony No. 2
Franz Liszt – Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major for Piano and Orchestra
Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92

“A masterpiece of technical skill, taste, imagination, craftsmanship and inspiration.” Thus did the hyper-critical Hector Berlioz sum up his thoughts on Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, one of the most beloved of Beethoven’s Nine ever since its wildly successful premiere (at which the audience insisted on an immediate repeat of the slow movement). Franz Liszt’s impassioned and innovative Piano Concerto No. 1 will be performed by the winner of the Philharmonic’s 2018 Don Bushell competition, Hexin Qiao. A symphonic work by Finnish composer Helvi Leiviskä rounds out this special concert.
