Saint-Saëns Africa
Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 5 Egyptian
Beethoven Symphony No. 5

Award-winning pianist, Spencer Myer, returns to perform Saint-Saëns’ virtuosic Piano Concerto No. 5 and the Fantasy Africa – both sonic picture postcards of North Africa, evocative of indigenous rhythms, melodies, and harmonies. Beethoven’s astronomically popular Symphony No. 5 is one of the most easily recognized pieces in music history; with its raw power and overwhelming representation of triumph over adversity, it has come to epitomize Beethoven’s life and musical style.
