Beethoven 250: Laplante Plays Emperor – WSO Digital Concert Series
Saturday, November 21
Beethoven’s mastery of the concerto form is most exemplified by his Piano Concerto No. 5 Op. 73 “Emperor”. Canadian pianist Andre Laplante joins the WSO to perform this piece known for its grandeur, bold melodies, and heroic spirit.
CBC Music describes Leplante’s performances as “passionate, intense, mercurial” and says his playing “never fails to excite.” Leplante brings that passion to the brilliance of Beethoven as he joins WSO for the crown jewel of piano concertos.
