Now Playing

Beethoven's Third Symphony


Leonard Slatkin, conductor

Olga Kern, piano


Conor Brown, World Premiere

Barber , Piano Concerto

Beethoven , Symphony No. 3, "Eroica"

Leonard Slatkin’s 10th Season as DSO Music Director opens with Beethoven’s transformational 3rd Symphony, a work that would redefine the scope of what a symphony could be, and called the “Eroica” for its wide range of emotion. Pianist Olga Kern returns to perform Barber’s Piano Concerto, a famously challenging work that was made humanly possible to play only after a timely intervention by the mighty Vladimir Horowitz.

Join the DSO and Assistant Conductor Michelle Merrill for this season's webcasts of the Educational Concert Series (ECS). ECS introduces schoolchildren to classical music with thematic concerts and accompanying teacher resource tools available to those who register to watch.
