N.C. Symphony: Beethoven's Emperor Concerto

When: Fri., Jan. 15, 8 p.m. and Sat., Jan. 16, 8 p.m. 2016

The first North Carolina Symphony concert of 2016 is all about the piano. Beethoven’s “Emperor” concerto is symphonic in scope, with the soloist fully integrated into the ensemble and nary a cadenza to be found. The symphony pairs it with Andrew Norman’s Suspend, a 2014 fantasy on Brahms-like themes. At 36, Norman is one of the most in-demand orchestral composers. Both works will feature Israeli pianist Inon Barnatan. —Dan Ruccia

Price: $18-$66
