Conductor Christoph Eschenbach begins NSO tenure with diverse inaugural season
Christoph Eschenbach is starting his National Symphony Orchestra tenure with a bit of a bang. His inaugural season bears a personal stamp, and a good balance of repertory standards (all of Beethoven’s piano concertos) and new works (a world premiere by Peter Lieberson for the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s inauguration). It also offers big-name soloists who have long-standing professional relationships with the conductor — Renée Fleming, Lang Lang, Christian Tetzlaff, Gil Shaham, Radu Lupu — and who offered personal statements, for the brochure, about how much they love him. It’s a nice touch.
