    Masur Conducts Beethoven

    Concert Details

    Music Director Ken-David Masur conducts a program bookended by Beethoven, opening with his First Symphony, which made an immediate splash and changed the symphony genre forever. And closing with his Second Symphony – a work of cheer and sunlight — surprising, considering that Beethoven was beginning to lament his loss of hearing. In the middle is Schumann’s Konzertstück is a special treat, rarely performed and riddled with challenges for the entire horn section — Schumann was excited to compose for horns with valves, an innovation in his time.
