Cancelled: The Philadelphia Orchestra

Friday, April 3, 2020 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Yannick Nézet-Séguin by Jessica Griffin
Enjoy a unique opportunity to hear Beethoven’s development as a symphonic composer in one evening with his first and last symphonies. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 respects the traditions of his teacher Haydn, but surges with propulsive energy and intrigues with novel harmonies. The choral finale of Beethoven’s Ninth is revolutionary—it’s the first symphony to use voices—but its preceding movements also break new ground with their vast breadth and tremendous emotional power.
