Rafael Payare leads this brilliant Romantic-meets-Modern program that opens with Sofia Gubaidulina’s dynamic Fairytale Poem. Jean-Yves Thibaudet brings his dazzling style and theatricality to 20th-century composer Maurice Ravel’s Piano Concerto. The second half features Beethoven’s towering Symphony No. 3—an ode to heroism, revolution and freedom. The “Eroica” is considered by many to be the greatest of not just Beethoven’s symphonies, but the greatest symphony of all time.
