Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts the Philharmonic in two of Beethoven’s most popular works: the “Eroica” Symphony, whose bold, majestic score ends on a note of triumph and exhilaration, and his Piano Concerto No. 3, a virtuosic showcase for Benjamin Grosvenor. Plus a World Premiere by Iceland’s Anna Thorvaldsdottir, whose lyrical and atmospheric music “has a natural beauty.” (The New York Times)
