A night of the triumphant and sublime

Experience Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony - an immense and soul-stirring exposition on triumph over tragedy - alongside his brilliant “Emperor Concerto” on the instruments of the composer’s time played with vitality by Mercury and hear works renewed - fresh, invigorating, remarkable.  Joining Mercury is Alon Goldstein, piano, who brings, “A beautifully balanced approach to the score, refined yet impetuous, noble yet spirited" (New York Times). 



Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major, Op. 73 “Emperor”
