Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4

Imogen Cooper’s performances of Beethoven have been hailed by critics as “mercurial from start to finish.” Hear why when she performs the composer’s Piano Concerto No. 4. Music Director Ludovic Morlot brings us Henri Dutilleux’s scintillating Timbres, espace, mouvement.


For the past three years, the Seattle Symphony has partnered with Mary's Place to empower mothers experiencing homelessness or in transition by helping them write a lullaby for their children. We invite you to join us for a special performance of their lullabies in the Samuel & Althea Stroum Grand Lobby following the Thursday night concert. Their lullabies will also be performed as part of a showcase at the Northwest Folklife Festival on May 29, at 2pm, in the Center Theatre.
