Review: Beethoven & Blue Jeans: Oktoberfest! (Free Times)

David Lowry of the Free Times reviews "Beethoven & Blue Jeans" which was Saturday, Oct. 11 at the Koger Center. The concert featured guest pianist Hugo Kitano (right) playing Beethoven's Third Piano Concerto and two of the composer's other works.


"The popularity of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony stands on equal ground worldwide with the composer’s First, Third, Fifth and Ninth symphonies. The approach that Maestro Nakahara took was masterful, and the orchestra reacted with superb mastery. The strings in this whole concert were stunningly fine. The blend with the wind sections was excellent."
