Presented by Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra

Mendelssohn’s “Italian” symphony was inspired by a tour from Milan to Naples, calling to mind sunny Roman landscapes. “This is Italy!,” wrote Mendelssohn, “And now has begun what I have always thought to be the supreme joy in life.” Music Director Ken-David Masur also leads Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto which abounds with youth and vigor, and was written as a showpiece for Beethoven himself. Orion Weiss, a pianist “with virtuosity to spare” (Washington Post), performs the Beethoven.
