Kansas City Symphony Classical Series BEETHOVEN’S “EMPEROR” with SIBELIUS’ SEVENTH

Helzberg Hall, Kauffman Center

Michael Stern, conductor

Jeremy Denk, pianist

BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor”

SIBELIUS Symphony No. 7

SCRIABIN Poem of Ecstasy

American pianist Jeremy Denk is the soloist in these Kansas City Symphony concerts with Beethoven’s final piano concerto, the “Emperor.” The nickname refers not to any particular member of royalty but to the Concerto’s grand and noble music. In the span of one movement lasting 20 minutes, Sibelius’ Seventh and final symphony explores a universe of emotions. Scriabin’s Poem of Ecstasy, a virtuosic romantic work for large orchestral forces, depicts “the spirit that creates sorrow in doubt, (giving) itself to the torment of love.” Tickets start at $25. For more information, please call the Symphony Box Office at (816) 471-0400 or visit
