Biss and the orchestra perform West Coast premieres of piano concertos by Timo Andres (his Pulitzer-nominated The Blind Banister) and Salvatore Sciarrino, each paired with its companion Beethoven concerto. Also in its West Coast premiere, the SPCO performs George Tsontakis' wistful, elegant O Mikros, O Megas. Beethoven's towering Emperor Concerto provides a rousing finale to the orchestra's weekend residency. #BerkeleyRADICAL #BlurringBoundaries
