Andris Nelsons, conductor
Emanuel Ax, piano
SCHULLER Seven Studies on Themes of Paul Klee
MOZART Piano Concerto No. 22 in E-flat, K.482
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3, Eroica

Andris Nelsons and Emanuel Ax team up for one of the pianist’s favorites, Mozart’s gregarious, large-scale Piano Concerto in E-flat, K.482, composed in late 1785 when Mozart was also working on his comic opera The Marriage of Figaro. The American composer Gunther Schuller wrote his kaleidoscopic Seven Studies on Themes of Paul Klee in 1959. Each of its movements is based on a different Klee work, inspiring from the composer a wealth of styles ranging from the blues to mysterious modernism. Closing the program is Beethoven’s revolutionary Symphony No. 3, Eroica, which radically expanded the boundaries of the symphonic genre.
