I apologize for the lack of posts leading up to this weekend’s performances. No matter how many times people tell you how stressful moving is, it always comes as a surprise. Moving all the way from Philly has certainly taught me some lessons on how to move in the future!
I hope to see you tomorrow or this weekend at the MSO’s all-Beethoven concerts! I’ll be giving a presentation in the Anello Atrium one hour before every performance. Come and find out about…
… why this program is like watching your favorite movie trilogy.
… how the opening of Beethoven’s first symphony is one of the most daring things ever written.
… what happens when Beethoven and C minor meet up.
… how Beethoven writes a musical “Table of Contents” at the beginning of his Grosse Fuge.
… all my favorite moments in the program! (It’s rather selfish, but you can’t go wrong picking from Beethoven.)
Hope to see you all for a wild weekend with Maestro De Waart, the MSO… and Beethoven!
