Plan your attendance now, for what promises to be a memorable series of concerts:
Conductor Simon Rattle will be offering New York audiences several concerts that feature the Beethoven symphonies.
The first program presents the Symphony No. 3 in E-Flat Major, “Eroica”, preceded by the Symphony No. 1 in C Major.
The second features the lyrically amazing Symphony No. 2 in D Major and the Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, with the “Leonore” Overture No. 1.
The next concert includes the Eighth Symphony and the Symphony No. 6, “Pastorale.”
Friday night belongs to the wonderful Symphony No. 4 in B-Flat Major, and the ever-popular Symphony No. 7 in A Major.
The series wraps up on Saturday night with, of course, the Symphony No. 9 – the “Choral,”— with Rattle and the orchestra joined by the Westminster Symphonic Choir and the vocal soloists Annette Dasch, Eva Vogel, Christian Elsner, and Dimitry Ivashchenko.
