Beethoven's Heroic Symphony 

When: Thu., April 21 2016
Composer Ludwig van Beethoven once said that Symphony No. 3 was his favorite. Tonight at 7:30 at Severance Hall, the Cleveland Orchestra performs the piece under the direction of conductor Antoni Wit. The concert will also include Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto with soloist Jan Lisiecki and an orchestral overture by Wagner that serves as homage to the Polish people. An hour before the concert, Kent State University professor Donna Lee gives a pre-concert talk dubbed “Heroic Beethoven, Fashionable Chopin.” Tickets start at $29, and performances repeat at 8 p.m. on Saturday and at 3 p.m. on Sunday.
