Join Symphony San Jose’s salute to this most revered of creator-innovators with an All-Beethoven program under the baton of Maestro John Nelson. Jon Nakamatsu, internationally renowned and local favorite, will perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 and the 5th Symphony… Beethoven’s stunning signature work and a cornerstone of Western music.

Ludwig van Beethoven Program

Note: Both the Concerto and the Symphony were premiered for a general audience on the same evening in 1808, with Beethoven the soloist for the first work and conductor for the second. Remarkable indeed.
