Matthias Pintscher, conductor
Jonathan Biss, piano
Pianist Jonathan Biss returns for the third installment of Beethoven/5, a five-year collaboration between Biss and the SPCO to commission five new piano concertos to be premiered alongside Beethoven’s piano concertos.
This year the SPCO welcomes the venerable Italian composer Salvatore Sciarrino, who will be responding to Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto in his own unique musical language. Matthias Pintscher, Music Director of the renowned Ensemble intercontemporain, returns to the SPCO to conduct this varied program, beginning with Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony No. 2, a staple of the SPCO’s repertoire.
