Finishing Touches: Fischer conducts Beethoven’s Fifth







ABOUT THIS PERFORMANCE

Can four notes change the world? Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 is one of the most recognizable pieces of music, and yet its most incredible accomplishment is that it still has the power to surprise. On the first half of the concert, Moldovian-Austrian violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, “one of classical music’s greatest risk takers” (Bachtrack), performs Schoenberg’s imaginative Violin Concerto.

Experience a behind-the-scenes look at our orchestra during four Masterworks Series rehearsals. Includes light refreshments in the lobby prior to the rehearsal. Please note that these events are working rehearsals and programming is chosen from that weekend's selections at the discretion of the conductor.
