  • Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 3
  • Schumann Symphony No. 3, “Rhenish”

Under the baton of NAC Orchestra Music Director Alexander Shelley , the Beethoven and Schumann Festival continues with the incredibly talented Israeli pianist Saleem Ashkar performing Beethoven’s startlingly dramatic third piano concerto.  Then don’t miss Schumann’s playfully provocative third symphony. Both works composed during times of extreme emotional crisis of brilliant masters.

“A formidable musician... who has a mixture of warmth and clarity, intensity and freshness that simply grabs you. Pure Beethoven joy.”
