PROGRAM

  • Beethoven
    Piano Concerto No. 5 “Emperor”
    Behzod Abduraimov, piano
  • Prokofiev
    Symphony No. 5

Young Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov, whom The Independent calls "the most perfectly accomplished pianist of his generation," makes his Sarasota Orchestra debut in Beethoven’s epic "Emperor" Concerto, which embodies Beethoven’s triumphant heroic period of composition. Prokofiev described his Fifth Symphony as "glorifying the greatness of the human spirit, a song of praise of free and happy mankind." Written while World War II raged, the technically demanding, tremendously inspiring orchestral tour de force landed its composer on the November 1945 cover of Time magazine.
