Please join us 45 minutes before the concert for "What's the Score?", a lively talk about the composers and the repertoire given by commentator Nuvi Mehta from the stage of Copley Symphony Hall.

The Beethoven Festival begins! Leonore’s tale of love and liberty bursts onto the stage with its impassioned drama. Seven-time Grammy®-winning pianist Emanuel Ax then joins us to reveal the surprising delight of Ludwig van Beethoven’s first (published) piano concerto, a youthful showpiece that dazzled Viennese audiences. Edo de Waart and the San Diego Symphony bring our opening portrait of Beethoven to a grand finale with the joyous wit of the composer’s Fourth Symphony.

This concert is part of the San Diego Symphony's season-long celebration of Beethoven's 250th birthday.
