Our Final Season Concert
The Emperor and the Titan


Alessio Bax, piano 
Sunday, June 5, 2016 - 3:00pm
Mount Baker Theatre

Few works in the piano repertoire have captured audiences' hearts as much as Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto, subtitled Emperor. The WSO is joined for this beloved work by internationally acclaimed pianist Alessio Bax, whose electrifying performances have been compared to an out of body experience (Dallas Morning News) for listeners.

Mahler's soaring First Symphony completes the program, ending the anniversary season with a royal flourish!
