Schubert and Beethoven

Thu / Feb 15, 2024 - 8:00PM

Herbert Blomstedt leads symphonies by two legendary contemporaries.

About this Performance

With flavors of Haydn, Beethoven, and Rossini, Schubert’s epic Sixth Symphony is a rollercoaster of somberness, charm, serenity, and humor, with the wind section shining brightest here. With the composer having turned 21 while composing it, an overall sense of youthfulness permeates throughout the piece. Legendary conductor Herbert Blomstedt leads the dance that is Beethoven’s self-described “most excellent symphony,” showcasing the composer’s exuberant and optimistic side in full display.
