The Symphony of Southeast Texas: "The Titans of the Classics: Beethoven and Shostakovich"
There’s something about fifths in musical literature. So many composers are recognized after writing their fifth symphony or concerto, including Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Mendelssohn, Mahler, Beethoven, and Shostakovich. This concert features two of those titans—Beethoven’s Emperor or fifth piano concerto and Shostakovich’s fifth symphony. Phillipe Bianconi, a perennial favorite of Beaumont audiences, returns to treat audiences with his majestic playing. Prize winner of the famed Van Cliburn Piano Competition, Bianconi’s treatment of Beethoven’s melodies brings the music alive with color and passion, all through technical wizardry.
