Robert Spano, celebrated Music Director of the Atlanta Symphony, and world-renowned pianist Yefim Bronfman join forces for an unforgettable evening at the New World Center. Ludwig van Beethoven shed the cheery brightness of his first two piano concertos to embrace the moody minor-key emotionalism in his third. Hailed as “a marvel of digital dexterity and jaw-dropping bravura” by the Chicago Tribune, Bronfman shines in Beethoven’s masterpiece. Samuel Barber’s First Symphony packs a punch, compressing the power of four movements into one. This dramatic gem by a beloved American composer is alive with energy and soaring lyricism.
