Saturday and Sunday To-Do: 'The Majesty of Beethoven'

Posted By on Fri, Oct 16, 2009 at 1:23 PM


Andrew von Oeyen.

8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $17-$58.

The search continues. Candidate two of five in the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's search for a new conductor sounds pretty impressive on paper. A Rhodes Scholar trained in the violin, Philip Mann, 31, has traveled the world as a chamber player, concertmaster and soloist. The BBC has called him a “talent to watch out for, who conveys a mature command of his forces.” He's currently an American Conducting Fellow and the San Diego Symphony's Assistant Conductor. On Saturday and Sunday, he'll conduct the ASO in the Overture to  “Rusian and Ludmila” by Mikhail Glinka, the “father of Russian music;” Beethoven's “Piano Concerto No. 5” and Tchaikovsky's “Symphony No. 5.” Decorated pianist Andrew von Oeyen accompanies the ASO on the Beethoven selection, the so-called “Emperor Concerto.”
