Beethoven Fourth Symphony
Presale through May 3, 2016









Tito Muñoz, conductor
Sergio Tiempo, piano

Beethoven: Symphony No. 4
Ginastera: Piano Concerto No. 1
Ravel: La Valse

Tito Muñoz conducts a program of Beethoven, Ginastera, and Ravel – three enigmatic geniuses, brazen and poetic in equal measure. Though often lost in the shadows of its surrounding symphonies, Beethoven’s Fourth is a sunny, rambunctious expression of this composer’s capricious spirit. After the break, Argentinian pianist Sergio Tiempo takes the stage in Ginastera’s rarely heard First Piano Concerto – a stunning work of fury and fantasy. Ravel’s La Valse closes these concerts with a vibrant splash of color, creating a bawdy and delightful trope on a classic Viennese dance – the waltz.
