What could be better than Beethoven’s Fifth? Two Fifths: his iconic symphony and the majestic “Emperor,” Piano Concerto No. 5. Arguably the best-known opening theme in all of classical music, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony leads you on a thrilling, uplifting, emotional journey. Internationally acclaimed pianist Yuliya Gorenman and the Maryland Symphony Orchestra offer a magnificent conclusion to a wondrous season. Gorenman earned her laureate at the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Piano Competition. She is hailed as one of the most exciting Beethoven interpreters of her generation and has recorded the entire Beethoven concerti live. Her sold-out performances of all the Beethoven piano sonatas have garnered critical acclaim.
Join us as we wind down the 2016/17 Season in spectacular fashion with Beethoven's Fifths at the Maryland Theatre!
Arrive early for “Prelude,” an in-depth presentation about musical works to help make the most of your concert experience, starting one hour prior to each performance, free to all ticket holders.
