    Piano Concerto No. 4
    • Jeffrey Kahane, piano
    Symphony No. 1 (Spring)

Festival Music Director Jeffrey Kahane leads the Festival Orchestra from the keyboard as the soloist in Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto, which has long been associated with the legend of Orpheus’ descent to the underworld. Famous for its dialogue between soloist and orchestra, the concerto combines the spirit of chamber music with symphonic majesty. Emily Cooley’s Argo offers a lush, colorful meditation on the meaning of identity—is the great ship still the same if all its parts are replaced over time? The Festival concludes as it began—with the music of Robert Schumann. Exploring the different aspects of spring’s beauty, Schumann’s joyous “Spring” Symphony brings the 2023 Sarasota Music Festival to an ecstatic, rousing close.
