Symphony No. 7, Beethoven
Program Notes

Beethoven 7

7:30 PM
Haydn, Strauss, Beethoven
Tuesday, December 16, 2014

Manfred Honeck returns to Chicago to conduct three masterpieces from the Austro-German tradition. The lilting dance-rhythms of Haydn’s Symphony No. 93 and rambunctious rhythms of Beethoven’s Seventh, described by Wagner as “the apotheosis of the dance,” frame Richard Strauss’ Don Juan. In Strauss’ depiction of the legendary lover, a brazen horn call announces a swaggering Don Juan, whose numerous romantic conquests lead to a tragic finale.


  • Haydn Symphony No. 93
  • Strauss Don Juan
