Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique

Sunday, February 23, 2020 2 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
URL Copied
Sir John Eliot Gardiner by Steve Forrest / Insight
Hear musical depictions of bird song, a rowdy country dance, a wild thunderstorm, and partying peasants just as Beethoven’s 1808 audience would have at the “Pastoral” Symphony's premiere. The period instruments of the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique enhance the richly detailed orchestration, so string textures are transparent, winds and brass piquant, and timpani—especially in the storm music—have visceral punch. Beethoven's Symphony No. 7—a joyously propulsive masterpiece—will lift you from your seat, especially when those natural horns lead the charge in the finale.
