The performance includes Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 and Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2.
The Seattle Symphony is one of America's leading symphony orchestras and is internationally acclaimed for its innovative programming and extensive recording history. Under the leadership of Morlot since September 2011, the symphony is heard by more than 500,000 people through live performances and radio broadcasts, and its extensive education and community engagement programs reach more than 65,000 children and adults each year. The Seattle Symphony has a deep commitment to new music, commissioning many works by living composers each season. The orchestra has made nearly 150 recordings and has received two Grammy Awards, 21 Grammy nominations, two Emmy Awards, and numerous other accolades. In 2014 the symphony launched its in-house recording label, Seattle Symphony Media.
