Marcelo Lehninger Conductor | Kirill Gerstein Piano

Alongside his Symphonies, the Piano Concertos of Beethoven have been towering masterworks for two centuries. Over two nights in March, Kirill Gerstein celebrates the composer’s 250th anniversary with all five concertos. From the youthful First Piano Concerto, composed at age 25, to the grand “Emperor” Concerto written in the war-torn Vienna of 1809.   Gerstein is a pianist who “shows how virtuosity and soulfulness can go hand in hand,” declares the Chicago Sun-Times.
