Beethoven's Fifth Symphony

From its ominous opening — “Fate knocking at the door” — to the closing passages of radiant triumph, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony charts an exhilarating spiritual journey. Beethoven’s legacy looms in works by Carlos Simon and Timo Andres, whose Blind Bannister reimagines the grace and wit of Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto.

Brahms' First Symphony

Our season concludes in a blaze of orchestral glory with Brahms’ First Symphony, a work of intense passion and soaring lyricism. Plus, Principal Bassoon Carin Miller displays her instrument’s suave tone and puckish agility in Villa-Lobos’s Ciranda das Sete Notas, while Gabriella Smith’s One serves as an urgent appeal to protect our fragile ecosystem.
