Description

BEETHOVEN | Egmont Overture
HAYDN | Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major
BEETHOVEN | Symphony No. 7 in A Major

Francisco Vila, cello | Concert Sponsor: Wendy Brandon

Our 67th season opener continues the celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday with his Symphony No. 7, rumored to have been his favorite. Wagner considered it to be the epitome of dance and that no one, not even “the grandmother, the blind and the lame” could resist the impulse to dance upon hearing it. The symphony’s 2nd movement was considered by both Schubert and Wagner to be “the greatest piece of music ever written.” Ecuadorian cellist Francisco Vila will dazzle us with a performance of Haydn’s 1st cello concerto, a work that is both charming and virtuosic, with an utterly joyful conclusion. The evening begins with Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, written in 1809 to accompany Goethe’s play of the same name.
