New Jersey Symphony: Hugh Wolff Conducts Beethoven & MozartClassical
Beethoven Egmont Overture The powerful and expressive Egmont Overture distills all of Beethoven’s musical hallmarks – storminess, heroism, triumph – into eight minutes. In 1956, this stirring piece helped inspire a nationwide uprising against the Marxist-Leninist government of the Hungarian People’s Republic. Mozart Piano Concerto No. 25 American classical pianist Richard Goode is recognized worldwide for the special touch and insight he brings to Mozart. Hear his effortless artistry in this most regal of Mozart’s concertos. Aaron Jay Kernis Symphony No. 2 Former New Jersey Symphony Music Director Hugh Wolff returns to a work he premiered with the Symphony back in 1992. Kernis wrote this symphony to express his complex views on the just-beginning Persian Gulf War. Ravel La valse La valse is one Ravel’s most intense and colorful works; originally composed as a series of waltzes for the piano, it is now most often heard as an orchestral piece.
