Beethoven Symphony No. 7

Nov 5, 2021 - Nov 7, 2021

Details

Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony was dubbed the ‘apotheosis of dance’ by Wagner, due to the whirling, spinning motion at the heart of the composition. The iconic Allegretto alone stands as a powerful, hauntingly beautiful, and relentlessly rhythmic piece of music that remains one of Beethoven’s most beloved and well-known works. A pair of rising stars — conductor Aram Demirjian and violinist Paul Huang — make their Colorado Symphony debuts with Huang lending his virtuosic style to Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, one of the most famous and beautiful of all works for the instrument. The program begins with Clarice Assad’s Sin fronteras,  incorporating elements of her South American heritage in a work that imagines the resulting musical synergy that comes from tearing down invisible cultural boundaries.
