Former BSO assistant conductor Marcelo Lehninger, who last led the BSO in 2014, is joined by his Brazilian compatriot, distinguished pianist Nelson Freire, for Beethoven's heaven-storming Piano Concerto No. 5. Completed in 1811, it was the composer's final concerto, a work perfectly balancing virtuosity with substance and depth and epitomizing the composer's "heroic" period. (Freire last performed with the BSO at Symphony Hall in 2010.) Beethoven's bright, five-minute overture to The Creatures of Prometheus, composed in 1801, was part of his complete ballet score, the first music he ever wrote for the theater. Closing the program is Tchaikovsky's 1888 Symphony No. 5, a work as intensely lyrical as it is powerful, which uses a recurring "fate theme" to unify all four movements.
