Dayton Performing Arts Alliance Presents

Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto

Jan 10 & Jan 11, 2025

Schuster Center


Elena Ruehr: “Sky Above Clouds” From O’Keeffe Images
Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5 In E-flat Major, Op. 73, “Emperor”
Johannes Brahms: Symphony No. 3 In F Major, Op. 90

Inspired by paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe, composer Elena Ruehr’s “Sky Above Clouds” is the middle movement of a musical triptych and perfectly captures O’Keeffe’s flair for contemporary sweeping tableaus. The dramatic evening continues with two orchestral heavyweights: Brahms’s Symphony No. 3 and Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto, widely considered to be among his greatest works.

Ian Parker, Piano
Neal Gittleman, Conductor
