Ian Hobson displays his virtuosity as he skillfully conducts the powerful and heroic “Emperor Concerto” from the keyboard. The joyous Symphony No. 9 with vocal solos and chorus, considered by many to be not only Beethoven’s greatest work but one of the best of the Western classical repertoire, continues to delight long after the concert concludes.
