I Verity. The Concerto Number five in the five major for piano and Marcus traveled for 73 by Beethoven with Gina Bach are a soloist and the Symphony Number two in C major opus 61 by Robert Schumann. The program opens with the Sicilian Vespers by Verity. Verity composed this opera in 1854 following the completion of the
Traviata. The plot deals with the successful attempt of the Sicilians in the 13th century to massacre their French overlord. The Sicilian Vespers was first performed at the Paris opera during the Paris Exhibition of 1855. And though it was initially successful the work has not survived according to a verity biographer Francis TOI. The overture is the best thing about the opera and perhaps the most successful overture Verdi ever wrote. It does reflect vividly the tragedy the gloom and the occasional fury of opera. And now here is our guest conductor Jorge Mester to conduct the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in the overture to the opera the Sicilian Vespers by the bad guy.

Next the picture of the number five in E-flat major for piano and orchestra Opus 73 by Beethoven with Gina Bach car as soloist. The last of Beethoven's piano concertos was composed in 89 in Vienna. While the city was occupied by Napoleon's troops. At one time Beethoven had seen Napoleon as a heroic figure as a liberator and champion of the peoples rights. When the ambitious general declared himself emperor. The composer's faith was shattered. Beethoven is supposed to have cried. Is he to nothing more than
an ordinary human being. Now he too will trample on all the rights of man and indulge only his ambition. The polling then was certainly not the Emperor of the Emperor Concerto in fact. Beethoven never called the work the Emperor Concerto the widely accepted theory is that a music publisher gave it this title Some years later to convey the power and majesty of the music. It's possible too that the publisher had an actual emperor in mind. If so it must have been His Imperial Highness Rudolf Archduke of Austria to whom the work is dedicated. Now here is our soloist.
