Blossom Music Center | Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio
The Cleveland Orchestra presents Beethoven's Emperor at the Blossom Music Center on Saturday 3rd August 2019 at 8 PM. This musical experience will be conducted by Maestro Andrey Boreyko while the piano will be presented by the one and only Francesco Piemontesi. This is a performance you do not want to miss!
Renowned pianist Francesco Piemontesi is of exceptional refinement of expression. Every note he plays through his fingertips is allied to a consummate technical skill.
He is most popular for his interpretation of the Classical and early Romantic repertoire. Piemontesi also has a close affinity with the later 19th and 20th-century repertoire of Brahms, Liszt, Dvořák, Ravel, Debussy, Bartók and beyond. According to Piemontesi, Alfred Brendel, one of his most influential mentors, taught him “to love the detail of things”.
Piemontesi has appeared worldwide with many of the most respected conductors like Zubin Mehta, Iván Fischer, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Gianandrea Noseda, Marek Janowski, Sir Mark Elder, Manfred Honeck, Sakari Oramo, Pablo Heras-Casado, Andrew Manze and Sir Roger Norrington. He has also performed with London Symphony, Philharmonia, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Czech Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Berlin and Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Tonhalle-Orchestra Zurich, Vienna Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, St Petersburg Philharmonic, etc.
This time Piemontesi will be playing one of Beethoven’s most famous concert, nicknamed Emperor, to make you feel like royalty. The Beethoven’s Emperor was dedicated to his patron and pupil — Archduke Rudolf of Austria.
Leading The Cleveland Orchestra will be Maestro Andrey Boreyko, a Russian born conductor. Boreyko has conducted multiple performances around the world including in Canada, Belgium, Germany and so on.
