Beethoven, Violin Concerto

Beethoven, Symphony No. 5
The Festival and Music Director Peter Oundjian close a season-long celebration of Beethoven’s genius with one of the composer’s most famous works, the Fifth Symphony. With its iconic four-note opening and its ascent from darkness to light, Beethoven’s Fifth is perhaps, as novelist E.M. Forster described it, “the most sublime noise that has ever penetrated into the ear of man.” The program begins with Beethoven’s only violin concerto, a vivacious and melodic masterpiece requiring as adroit a musician as the Grammy-winning Augustin Hadelich, an artist of “scarcely believable commitment” (New York Times).
