Ligeti: Violin Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 “Eroica”
Tito Munoz brings another monumental work of Beethoven to our 2016-2017 Season with Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony, a rigorous and emotional composition marking the transition to the Romantic period in classical music. Symphony No. 3 heralds the well known marcia funebre, or funeral march. Grammy nominated violinist Caroline Goulding also joins the program for Gyorgy Ligeti’s Violin Concerto., a synthesis of contemporary explorations and traditional melodic and formal conventions that the BC calls a “cornucopia of effects and techniques, a wild collage of atmospheres and colors”.
