With his informed historical approach, Paul Goodwin is the ideal conductor to reveal the musical relationship between classical Beethoven in his dazzling Fourth Symphony and the sprightly 20th century neoclassicism of Igor Stravinsky. Goodwin is joined by another artist making his debut, the remarkable 21-year-old Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki, harnessing his prodigious skill to conquer Beethoven’s grandest concerto of all, the “Emperor.”
