March 19-20: Beethoven's Seventh
Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony is not famous for the fire and muscle of the Third and Fifth, but rather for the slow and pensive second movement. A rhythm that feels like the pulse of life runs as a current under a soulful theme full of beauty and longing. Jean-Philippe Rameau’s dance music from Pygmalion provides a buoyant counterpoint to begin the program. Acclaimed British conductor Matthew Halls returns to lead the Symphony through this profound journey.
