Discover powerful themes of human existence. The bravura playing and heroic notes of Beethoven’s fifth piano concerto expresses why it is known as the “Emperor.” Brahms’ heart-wrenching Tragic Overture emphasizes the turbulent, tormented character of the piece, while Strauss’ transcendent Death and Transfiguration explores earthly travail resulting in heavenly bliss. Martina Filjak is “a musician of unusual sophistication, discipline and personality,” – The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
