Beethoven + Bartók
We kick off the Beethoven symphony cycle with his Symphony No. 1. Beethoven's influence is reflected in Bartók's Concerto for Orchestra, a masterful showcase for individual musicians as well as the ensemble.
Prokofiev + Beethoven
Beethoven's Symphony No. 4, a work of infectious joy, will get a modern-day response in a world premiere commission by Pierre Jalbert.
Brahms + Beethoven
Beethoven's jubilant Symphony No. 7 was an instant success, further solidifying his stature among his musical heirs, Schumann and Brahms. Schumann's lesser-known and eloquent overture to Die Braut von Messina (The Bride of Messina) sets the stage for Brahms' romantic Violin Concerto, featuring the "effusively lyrical" (The Guardian) violinist James Ehnes.
