Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra

Paavo Järvi, conductor
Sharon Bezaly, flute

The audio for this program has been removed, per American Public Media's rights agreement with this orchestra.

Beethoven: Overture to Fidelio, Op. 72
Mozart: Flute Concerto No. 2 in D Major
Mozart: Andante for Flute and Orchestra in C Major
Bartók: Concerto for Orchestra

Paavo Järvi's love for Mozart's Andante for Flute began when he was a boy and would play the piano part for his sister/flutist. It's remained one of his favorites through the years and for tonight's performance, he's asked the astonishing Sharon Bezaly to join him and bring along her golden flute.
Rick W. from Ludlow, KY correctly identified the Jon Kimura Parker's encore as 'Scenes from an Italian Restaurant' by Billy Joel. For answering the question correctly, he'll receive the CD "UBS Celebrates Great American Orchestras: Vol. II," featuring 10 of the best orchestras from around the country. Congratulations, Rick!
