Schreker: Kammersymphonie
Beethoven: Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major for Piano and Orchestra, op.73, Emperor

KWS Music Director Andrei Feher returns to the stage joined by celebrated Canadian pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin for an evening of mesmerizing works. Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto is one of the most accomplished of them all, ahead of its time with its virtuosic style and wide dynamic range. Schreker’s Kammersymphonie is compact in its immense emotional range and narrative, reminiscent of Schoenberg, Ravel, Webern, Strauss, and Mahler all at the same time. These sublime, swirling, and magically evocative works are love at first hearing.
