In this opening night celebration, FWSO Music Director Robert Spano will bring to life Brahms’ lyric Variations on a Theme by Haydn and Schubert’s mysterious “Unfinished” symphony. Pianist Jorge Federico Osorio kicks off the 2022-23 season with Beethoven’s triumphal “Emperor” piano concerto, a work of surging euphoria and unrivaled majesty. 

The grandeur of Beethoven's "Emperor" piano concerto, the mystery of Schubert's "Unfinished" symphony and the charm of Brahms' Variations on a Theme by Haydn make for a quintessentially classical evening.
