HaeSun Paik in Two Beethoven Piano Concerti at Church of the Heavenly Rest
Sunday May 10, 2020, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Concert Cycle 5 (Season Finale)
Dongmin Kim, conductor
Haesun Paik, piano
The Los Angeles Times called HaeSun Paik “a sensitive and thinking musician with stunning virtuosity” – and NYCP audiences will recall HaeSun’s intrepid quest to perform all five Beethoven piano concertos with the ensemble over three seasons. In NYCP’s season finale, Ms. Paik completes the challenge with performances of Beethoven’s Second and Fifth (and last) piano concertos. The more whimsical Second Concerto contrasts sharply with the dramatic Fifth Concerto. Known as the Emperor Concerto, the piece begins with one of Beethoven’s most stunning opening movements, in which the piano envelopes the orchestra in blazing flourishes and musical fireworks. Britten’s graceful Divertimenti open the program.
BRITTEN / Three Divertimenti

BEETHOVEN / Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-flat major, Op. 73 (arr. Ka Young Rhee)
