The smaller forerunner to the modern piano, the fortepiano is famed for its clear, light sound, which is perfect for a performance of Beethoven, especially since it's the instrument he used to compose his masterpieces. One of the world's top fortepiano players, Robert Levin, joins conductor Richard Egarr and The Handel and Haydn Society's Period Instrument Orchestra for a Boston Symphony Hall concert featuring a pair of Beethoven's most lyrical works, his nature-inspired Pastoral Symphony and his Piano Concerto No. 4. Egarr has received raves for his appearances as maestro, acclaimed by The Hub Review as "one of the most exciting talents on the period scene, and probably among the most compelling conductors on the planet ... under his inspired touch, the orchestra reliably pulls together into a gleaming period-music machine."
