Season Finale: Beethoven’s First Symphony

June 8-10, 2018


Painter Giacomo Balla, Baroque string virtuosity and the video game Gran Turismo converge as seemingly disparate influences in Andrew Norman’s energetic Gran Turismo. Serenade No. 2 provides contrast to the Norman and shows Johannes Brahms in one of his first attempts at symphonic composition. Mozart and Haydn’s influence on Beethoven are put on full display with his First Symphony — a vital early work in his compositional development — which brings both this program and the 2017.18 season to a thrilling close.
