Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at 8:00 PM – Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra – taped broadcast
The spirited Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of chief conductor Mariss Jansons, returns to Carnegie Hall! "That this Munich ensemble will handle works from the core repertory with assurance and finesse is as close to a sure bet as music provides" (The New York Times). These much-admired musicians perform Shostakovich's beloved Symphony No. 5 and are joined by dazzling pianist Mitsuko Uchida for Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto.
