TPTBT (The Place to Be Tonight): February 9, 2013
Radu Lupu plays a genial and low-key Beethoven 4th piano concerto with a seemingly effortless grace (like Fred Astaire, he makes virtuosity look easy), David Robertson leads the orchestra in a lush Brahms Symphony No. 2, and it all starts with a Gemütlichkeit-filled cruise down the Beautiful Blue Danube of Johann Strauss Jr. It must be another first-class evening with the St. Louis Symphony. The concert starts at 8 PM Saturday and repeats Sunday at 3 PM at Powell Symphony Hall, 718 North Grand in Grand Center. See my review for 88.1 KDHX and get your tickets at stlsymphony.org.
