1/31/2019 through 2/2/2019 | Benaroya Hall

Music Downtown

Surprises abound when thoughtful musicians indulge in a bit of mischief and mayhem! The first symphony that Shostakovich composed as a frisky teenager crackles with dark humor and cheeky irony. Pianist Jonathan Biss, a virtuoso of the highest order, approaches his craft with a scholar’s curiosity and a raconteur’s knack for captivating the minds and ears of his audience. He asked Caroline Shaw, the multi-talented composer and performer who became the youngest ever winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2013, to compose this concerto as a response to Beethoven, an endeavor that calls for a healthy balance of sanctity and whimsy.
