Leonard Slatkin’s 10th Season as DSO Music Director opens with Beethoven’s transformational 3rd Symphony, a work that would redefine the scope of what a symphony could be, and called the “Eroica” for its wide range of emotion. Pianist Olga Kern returns to perform Barber’s Piano Concerto, a famously challenging work that was made humanly possible to play only after a timely intervention by the mighty Vladimir Horowitz.
