Who is Beethoven?
Sunday, May 18, 2014
Ludwig van Beethoven wrote some of the most exciting, dramatic and influential pieces in all of classical music, and his memorable masterworks remain as important today as they were 200 years ago. Narrated and conducted by Edwin Outwater, this engaging and interactive program explores how the experiences and personality of this classical giant are reflected through his music. For those who wish to further explore the world of Beethoven, special preview materials will be emailed to all ticketholders prior to the concert.
