Show Info

"Bach, Beethoven, & Brahms" Artists Manfred Honeck, conductor Hélène Grimaud, piano Program Bach (orch. Stokowski): Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565 Beethoven: Symphony No. 4 in B-flat major, Opus 60 Brahms: Concerto No. 1 in D minor for Piano and Orchestra, Opus 15 About This Performance Originally written for organ, Leopold Stokowski orchestrated Toccata and Fugue in D Minor in 1927. It has since thrilled audiences and was made famous in popular culture by Disney’s Fantasia. With its fiery, rich harmonies and the powerful spirit of this symphony, it is surprising that the fourth is one of Beethoven’s lesser-known works. With playing touted as “superb, tightly controlled and forcefully articulated” by The Los Angeles Times, pianist and wildlife conservationist Hélène Grimaud returns to Heinz Hall with Brahms’ fierce and dramatic first piano concerto.
