Beethoven Eight

Date: 

Saturday, January 19, 2019

Description: 

We open the year of 2019 – Alabama’s bicentennial – by featuring the musicians of the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra front and center- January 19 at 7:30 PM. Our horn section will perform Schumann’s commanding Concert Piece, and our principal strings will give the Alabama premiere of John Adams’ Absolute Jest (2012), a dialogue between quartet and orchestra which mischievously samples many motives and themes from Beethoven. The great master himself anchors the program: we’ll hear one of several overtures he composed for his opera Fidelio, as well as the remarkably forward-thinking Eighth Symphony. Info. at https://www.hso.org/concerts/beethoven-eight/ and 256-539-4818.
