The pianist will lead Beethoven’s Second, Third, and Fourth Piano Concertos from the keyboard, as Alan and WQXR host Jeff Spurgeon discuss Leif Ove’s extended musical adventure through the five piano concertos he has called “The Beethoven Journey” — what it means to dive into the great composer’s work so thoroughly, and his discovery of how and why audiences connect with this music.

Grab a slice of birthday cake and tune in to WQXR at 8:00 p.m. on February 23, 2015.

We invite you to bring an old winter coat or other gently used clothes and drop them in one of the bins around Avery Fisher Hall. Volunteers from UNIQLO, which sponsors this season's Young People's Concerts and is dressing the Orchestra for them, will distribute them at New York City Homeless Shelters. 

The concert's at 2:00 p.m., but be sure to come at 1:00 for YPC Overtures, a mix of fun musical activities throughout the hall. Follow the first link above for info, a podcast, and TuneUp educational program notes.
