Join us for a decidedly different — and fun — concert experience. Fridays@7 features an early start time, no intermission, and a post-concert world music performance. Perfect for those trying out a concert by The Cleveland Orchestra for the first time, or for those looking for added musical spice.
For this concert, pianist Hélène Grimaud performed Beethoven's masterfully grand Emperor Concerto. A multi-faceted and charismatic artist, Grimaud is a naturally emotive, spiritual performer who has achieved her professional standing through intense an touring and recording program in which she shares her profound, original interpretations of classical music. (Grimaud’s critically lauded recording of the Emperor Concerto been chosen by iTunes for its new “Classical Essentials” series.) Conductor Fabio Luisi concludes the concert with Robert Schumann's early and joyfilled "Spring" Symphony.
