Move over, Mozart: The Festival Orchestra and guest conductor Richard Egarr present an all-Beethoven program for the composer’s 250th birthday, featuring pianist Stephen Hough, who brings “freshness and fire” (New York Classical Review) to the magisterial “Emperor” Concerto. The jovial Eighth Symphony rounds out the program.
“Richard Egarr wields the baton, proving himself a natural for this repertoire: the whole thing bounces and sparkles and smiles.”– Telegraph (U.K.)
“Hough’s playing was lucid, rich with colors and full of surprises [and had] a wonderful immediacy.”– New York Times
