Event Notes


Beethoven’s “Eroica”
Saturday, April 5, 2025
8PM - Michigan Theater
Andrew Grams, guest conductor
Kate Liu, piano

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, the “Eroica”—a work revolutionary in scale, scope, and substance. For the eminent musicologist Paul Henry Lang, “The ‘Eroica’ is the greatest single step made by an individual composer in the history of the symphony and the history of music in general.”

Guest conductor Andrew Grams brings this titanic work to the stage, plus 17th International Fryderyk Chopin Competition medalist Kate Liu makes her Ann Arbor debut with the soaring lyricism of Chopin’s F minor Piano Concerto. The product of the composer’s impassioned pursuit of the Polish soprano Konstancja Gładkowska, the concerto’s inexpressibly gorgeous second movement is conceived as a “piano aria,” framed by the virtuosic outer movements that characterize the composer’s peerless command of his instrument.
