Selby & Richard McRae Foundation Bravo Series - Bravo! Beethoven!
7:30 PM, Saturday, April 08, 2017
Composers after Beethoven lived in his towering shadow, and when experiencing his music live, one understands why! This evening presents both his symphonies 5 & 7. The Seventh is a favorite of many listeners with its infectious melodies and glorious use of the horns. From the dramatic four note opening the triumphant finale, the Fifth speaks to the inner heroic nature that resides in all of us.
