About The Concert

Beethoven’s groundbreaking Third Symphony, nicknamed “Eroica” for its heroic qualities, was originally dedicated to Napoleon, but his name was later removed in a fury of rage. In his ESO debut, Canadian pianist Sheng Cai will perform Khachaturian’s mesmerizing Piano Concerto. A beloved Chorale by Bach and a Passacaglia based on its theme by Canadian composer Oskar Morawetz round out the program.

BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"
KHACHATURIAN Piano Concerto
JS BACH Chorale Prelude: Herzlich tut mich
MORAWETZ Passacaglia on a Bach Chorale
