Beethoven & Strauss

This performance replaces Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3, originally scheduled Friday, March 5, and Saturday, March 6.

Double-threat violin and piano phenom Ray Ushikubo returns to perform Beethoven’s youthful, imaginative, first full-length orchestral piece, contrasted by the subdued resignation of Richard Strauss’ sunset years and Metamorphosen, and the pulsating Spanish rhythms of Turina’s tone poem capturing the toreador’s prayers to succeed in the ring versus the audience’s blood-thirsty anticipation of the spectacle.


JoAnn Falletta, conductor
Ray Ushikubo, piano

TURINA  La Oración del Torero (“The Bullfighter’s Prayer”) 
R. STRAUSS  Metamorphosen 
BEETHOVEN  Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major
