MARI KODAMA AND KENT NAGANO CELEBRATE BEETHOVEN
Beethoven’s heroic personality finds expression in his Egmont Overture, a mature work, while youthful ardour bursts forth in his Piano Concert no. 2. A wealth of ideas and a rousing Rondo finale give this work invigorating freshness. Beethoven specialist Mari Kodama is at the piano with Kent Nagano conducting the OSM. Connected not only as musical collaborators but also as a married couple, they will offer a performance of great complicity.
