Offering two evenings of memorable performances, the San Diego Symphony allows attendees to experience most of the Beethoven piano concerti in a short span of time. This side deal showcases four of the five concerti, as well as two of Beethoven’s renowned orchestra overtures. Performed at the historic Copley Symphony Hall, visitors will be able to soak in a sightly décor with unobstructed views of artistic virtuosity. Scheduled to perform are the acclaimed ivory ticklers Orli Shaham (April 29) and Yefim Bronfman (May 1), backed by San Diego’s finest brass blowers and string massagers. These particular piano concertos were spawned from Beethoven’s desire to meet the standard of Mozart’s 27 genre-redefining concertos. Filled with thundering swells and melodic fluidity, musical values come to the forefront of the inner ear. Hear influential works that span years of Beethoven’s career with this Groupon.
