One of the world’s foremost pianists, and in celebration of his 70th birthday, Rudolph Buchbinder takes the stage to perform not one but three concerti — beginning with the serene Mozart Piano Concerto No. 20 K. 466, a favorite of the composer. Beethoven’s last piano concerto, the “Emperor” will not disappoint, named a “symphonic concerto” with its grandiose and sublime movements ending with an exuberant allegro.
A pre-concert talk with Assistant Conductor Andrés Franco will occur on stage before the concert. Also before the concert, the Center for Young Musicians will perform in the Grand Lobby of Heinz Hall. Both pre-concert presentations begin one hour before the concert start time and are free and open to ticketholders.
Pianist Rudolf Buchbinder will be signing merchandise in the Grand Lobby immediately following the performance.
