Beethoven: Symphony No.7 in A major
On a weekend that celebrates the night, this concert features works that pay homage to the night sky. While being the most exuberant of his symphonies, Beethoven’s visceral Symphony No. 7 has appealed to audiences since its premiere. A contrast between musical optimism and grave, sombre tones, it builds to the irrepressible whirling energy of the finale.
