BEETHOVEN                                          Egmont Overture         

BEETHOVEN                                          Symphony No. 5

 

A trumpet fanfare rings across an empty stage. Musicians enter one by one, playing complementary motives which layer and intertwine to form Corigliano’s celebratory Promenade Overture. In this dramatic fashion, the Orchestra returns to the Civic Center stage for a triumphant and thrilling Season Debut. Pianist Andrew Tyson joins the Symphony to play Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, contrasting lush romanticism with bravura flourishes. Equal parts mysterious and heroic, Beethoven’s Egmont Overture depicts the victory over oppression of Goethe’s tragic hero.  Beethoven’s ominous four-note opening motif, often considered the musical manifestation of “fate knocking at the door,” opens his gripping, impassioned Fifth Symphony. Hear the raw power and the dramatic triumph of this masterpiece.
