Join TSO Maestro José Luis Gomez for a celebration of the life and works of Beethoven. This year TSO and orchestras all over the globe are celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday. Beethoven wasn’t a composer who settled – he was a revolutionary, looking to push the envelope of sound and space. Not only was he inspired, he was an inspiring figure for those who followed. His personal life was marked by an heroic struggle against encroaching deafness during which he composed some of his most important works. Widely regarded as the greatest composer who ever lived, Beethoven dominated a period of musical history as no one else before or since. He revealed more vividly than any of his predecessors the power of music to convey a philosophy of life and in certain of his compositions, the strongest assertion of the human will in all music, if not in all art. You’ve heard Beethoven’s Fifth. Discover the one that followed and the one that started it all.
Don’t miss TSO’s Concert featuring Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 in C Major and Symphony No. 6 in F Major.
