Houston Symphony presents Eschenbach Conducts Beethoven & Brahms 1
Revered conductor and former Houston Symphony Music Director Christoph Eschenbach returns to Jones Hall. Phenomenal young pianist Jan Lisiecki will tackle Beethoven’s poetic and powerful Piano Concerto No. 4, and Eschenbach, who was music director from 1988 to 1999, will lead Brahms’s monumental Symphony No. 1. The concerts open with Ibert’s dazzling Flute Concerto, performed by Greek virtuoso Stathis Karapanos.
The Saturday performance will be available to livestream.
