Mar 7, 2022 |Alexander W. Dreyfoos Concert Hall
Program to include:
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37
Mahler: Symphony No. 4 in G Major (Palm Beach Symphony Premiere)
Palm Beach Symphony’s Masterworks Series #4 program delivers all the passion, poetry and drama of classical music in two masterworks that also offer a showcase for the virtuosity of its musicians. Maria João Geissberger Pires, one of the most revered pianists of Beethoven and Mozart, joins the Symphony to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, performed initially by the composer as the first work written for the latest piano technology of the time. The Symphony adds Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 to its repertoire with its sleigh bells of childhood gaiety, dramatic tension and ultimately serene heavenly deliverance.
In addition to her concerts, Pires has made recordings for Erato for 15 years and Deutsche Grammophon for 20 years. Of her performance of Beethoven’s third piano concerto with Kent Nagano conducting the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, The New York Times reported she is “…an elegant technician and probing interpreter without a trace of flashiness. Her playing of the Beethoven concerto showed that a performance can be both refined and bracing.” Since the 1970s, she has devoted herself to reflecting the influence of art in life, community and education, trying to discover new ways of establishing this way of thinking in society. In 1999, she created the Belgais Centre for the Study of the Arts in Portugal and, in 2012, she initiated two complementary projects in Belgium: the Partitura Choirs, a project which creates and develops choirs for children from disadvantaged backgrounds, and the Partitura Workshops.
