Houston Symphony presents Beethoven’s Pastoral
Nature provided joy, fascination, and inspiration for Beethoven, and his Pastoral Symphony throws open the gates to green meadows, murmuring brooks, shepherds, a tumultuous thunderstorm, and merry peasant dances. Premiered on the same concert in 1808, with Beethoven himself as soloist, Piano Concerto No. 4 took the art form to sublime new heights of poetic expression. Romanian pianist Alexandra Dariescu joins the Houston Symphony. Fabien Gabel will be the conductor.
