Lang Lang, heralded as the “hottest artist on the classical music planet,” returns to Music Hall for the gala opening performance of the CSO’s 120th season—an all-Beethoven affair! Under the direction of CSO Music Director Louis Langrée, Lang Lang will perform the striking and thoroughly engaging Piano Concerto No. 1. The remaining two works on the program perfectly express the celebratory air of the evening: the stirring Egmont Overture and the joy-filled Symphony No. 7, with its lively rhythms and festive nature.
