The Philadelphia Orchestra: Beethoven's "Eroica"

Date/Time

Mar 8, 2013 to Mar 10, 2013

Description

Beethoven is able to make the most profound statements by taking the simplest gestures and motifs, and expanding them into grand symphonies. His “Eroica” Symphony was originally dedicated to Napoleon, but perhaps the real hero of this symphony is the composer himself. Beethoven was a revolutionary of his time and continues to influence music being written today. Mozart was equally progressive, especially in his Piano Concerto No. 20, which was unusual for its bold, syncopated rhythms and chromatic melodies. Rudolf Buchbinder, praised internationally for his interpretations of Mozart, returns to Philadelphia as soloist.
