About This Event
For Opening Night of the 2020-21 season, superstar Chinese pianist Lang Lang joins the BSO and Music Director Andris Nelsons in Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2, an early work of Beethovenian wit, drama, and virtuosity. Conscious of his responsibility to the legacy of both Mozart and Haydn, Beethoven waited until he was thirty to complete his Symphony No. 1. Its freshness and vitality immediately won favor with Viennese audiences.
