JONATHAN BAILEY HOLLAND: Halcyon Sun
PROKOFIEV: Violin Concerto No. 2
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 2
The infectious joy of Beethoven’s Second Symphony was in stark contrast to his personal life, as he was losing his hearing while he wrote it. The Prokofiev Second Violin Concerto, played by BBC New Generation Artist Esther Yoo, is a beautiful sonic pairing. We also revisit Halcyon Sun by Composer-in-Residence Jonathan Bailey Holland, premiered by the CSO in 2004.
This concert is part of Series 3.
Get inside the minds of composers and to the heart of the music with Classical Conversations, one hour before Friday, Saturday and Sunday Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra subscription concerts.
Concert Duration: Approx. 1 hour, 50 minutes with intermission.
