About This Performance

Originally written for organ, Leopold Stokowski orchestrated Toccata and Fugue in D Minor in 1927.  It has since thrilled audiences and was made famous in popular culture by Disney’s Fantasia.  With its fiery, rich harmonies and the powerful spirit of this symphony, it is surprising that the fourth is one of Beethoven’s lesser-known works.   With playing touted as “superb, tightly controlled and forcefully articulated” by The Los Angeles Times, pianist and wildlife conservationist Hélène Grimaud returns to Heinz Hall with Brahms’ fierce and dramatic first piano concerto.
