The AFO performs Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, the Emperor Concerto, featuring Italian pianist Maurizio Baglini; and Symphony No. 6, the Pastoral Symphony, a musical tribute to nature and the country setting where the symphony was written. This performance will be illustrated and animated by French artist Grégoire Pont, whose visual imagery drawn live, will accent Beethoven’s work and delight audiences of all ages.
Pianist, Maurizio Baglini has a brilliant career as a soloist, chamber musician, teacher and artistic director. As a soloist he performs in venues such as the National Academy of Santa Cecilia, the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the Teatro San Carlo in Naples, the Salle Gaveau in Paris, the Kennedy Center in Washington and will be joining the Artosphere Festival Orchestra's 8th season to perform Beethoven's "Emperor Concerto"!

A great lover of classical music, French artist/illustrator, Grégoire Pont, will join the 8th season of the Artosphere Festival Orchestra for a once-in-a lifetime performance of Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony. Grégoire Pont developed a new performance concept called Cinesthetics: in complicity with a group of musicains, he draws and animates live, creating a unqiue experience where music and motion interplay.
