Thursday subscribers attend the Saturday, June 20 concert
Friday subscribers attend the Friday, June 19 concert
On this celebratory evening Maestro Pinchas Zukerman leads Beethoven’s grandest symphony. This transcendent creation nobly embodies the composer’s ideals: triumph over adversity on the journey from conflict to harmony. The poetry of Schiller’s “Ode to Joy” in the finale exults in a world united in brotherhood—in the presence of a loving Father who dwells beyond the stars—while the music’s majesty and euphoria enfold us in a sublime embrace.
Opening the concert is Mozart’s graceful style gallant “Coronation” Concerto, with Canadian pianist and wunderkind Jan Lisiecki as soloist.
