Nashville Symphony | Ruth Reinhardt, conductor | Stewart Goodyear, piano
Piano Concerto No. 4
Symphony No. 2
Combining power and grandeur with tender, poetic expression, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 stands as one of his most profound achievements. Hear it performed by Stewart Goodyear, “one of the best pianists of his generation,” according to the Los Angeles Times. Myth becomes music in Auerbach’s scintillating Icarus, inspired by the ancient Greek story of the boy who flew too close to the sun. And soar through breathtaking sonic vistas of rugged Nordic beauty in Sibelius’s monumental Symphony No. 2.
