Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven: the supreme triumvirate of Viennese composers is complemented by a New York premiere from Austrian composer HK Gruber, fittingly inspired by Manhattan. “Crisp and confident” American conductor Joshua Weilerstein (New York Times) makes his Festival debut as irresistible pianist Beatrice Rana joins for Beethoven’s charming B-flat major Piano Concerto.
“One of the most promising podium presences of his generation.”– Los Angeles Times on Joshua Weilerstein
“Rana’s playing has a kind of Orphic seductiveness, a transcendent lightness of touch. A supremely intelligent reading.”– Times (U.K.)
