André de Ridder, conductor
William Wolfram, piano
GREENWOOD There Will Be Blood
BRITTEN Piano Concerto No. 1
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 1
Innovative German conductor André de Ridder leads an eclectic program that starts with a contemporary composer and moves backwards, inviting the audience to listen in new ways. Opener There Will Be Blood, from the 2007 film of the same name, was composed by Jonny Greenwood, best known as the guitarist in Britain’s art-rock combo Radiohead. William Wolfram takes on Britten’s sole piano concerto, brilliantly juxtaposed by Beethoven’s first symphony, which introduced the young composer to the world.
