Houston Symphony presents "Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1"
German-Japanese conductor Jun Märkl and young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, who won the BBC Young Musician Competition, both make their Houston Symphony debuts. Hear Berlioz's riveting overture Le Corsaire, about the imagined dangers and excitement of a pirate's life. Grosvenor joins the orchestra for Beethoven's lively and bold Piano Concerto No. 1, and the program concludes with the rafter-shaking effect of Saint-Saëns' Symphony No. 3, Organ Symphony.
