Beethoven 6 + Bartók

Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony throws open the gates to lush meadows, murmuring brooks, shepherds, and lively peasant dances. Composed as a surprise birthday gift for his wife, Bartók’s brilliant final work is infused with tender beauty, nostalgic reverie, and cheery high spirits, before catching fire for a fantastically exuberant finale. Ligeti’s Atmosphères, famously featured in 2001: A Space Odyssey, sets the stage. (Pictured: Javier Perianes, piano)

This concert is available in the Friday and Saturday 1 subscription series.
