Thrill to Beethoven's immortal Fifth, a work that never fails to excite. At 22, pianist Conrad Tao is a rising star; catch him while you can in Bartok's energizing concerto, composed in New York in 1945. BEETHOVEN Overture to Coriolan Ferocious and turbulent, inspired by Shakespeare's tragedy set in ancient Rome. BARTOK Piano Concerto No. 3 By turns bustling and lyrical; Bartok intended the concerto as a surprise birthday present for his wife, a pianist. BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 5 Four indelible notes ignite one explosive masterwork.
