NYCP’s tenth anniversary season begins with a salute to Romanticism’s greatest hits –Wagner’s stirring Prelude to Tristan und Isolde, Holst’s melodic “Jupiter” from his Planet suite, and Bartok’s stirring Divertimento for Strings. Pianist HaeSun Paik returns to NYCP for the next chapter of her Beethoven Project – a quest to play all of Beethoven’s piano concertos with New York Classical Players. In this season opener, Ms. Paik, joined by two soloists, embarks on Beethoven’s extraordinary Triple Concerto.
