Vladimir Jurowski, Conductor
Yefim Bronfman, Piano
Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5 ('Emperor')
Miaskovsky Symphony No. 10
Janáček Taras Bulba
Any time we have Yefim Bronfman playing Beethoven with Vladimir Jurowski is a special occasion! With eloquent support from Jurowski and the Orchestra, Bronfman brings his magisterial keyboard skills to Beethoven's towering 'Emperor' Concerto, revealing all the wonders of this masterwork. In the second half of the program, Jurowski turns to Nikolai Miaskovsky, a prolific composer whose Tenth Symphony is based on a fantastic Pushkin poem. The U.S. premiere was in 1930, with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Leopold Stokowski, thanks to the personal urging of Miaskovsky's friend and colleague Sergei Prokofiev. Another burst of romantic nationalism rounds out our program, with Janáček's tone poem Taras Bulba. It's hard-hitting, thrilling, and robust.
