Renowned English pianist Paul Lewis returns to perform two of Beethoven’s extraordinary piano concertos—the good-humored First and the intricate Fourth. Sir Andrew Davis, music director of Lyric Opera of Chicago and “a Tippett conductor of proven pedigree and insight” (Gramophone), leads two fascinating works by the 20th-century English composer.
Tippett - Little Music for String Orchestra
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 1
Tippett - Praeludium for Brass, Bells and Percussion
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No. 4
