MASTERWORKS 2

Beethoven, Mozart, Schumann

Darko Butorac, conductor

Adele Anthony, violin

Beethoven’s Egmont Overture presents a musical equivalent of the hero’s journey, moving from chaos and darkness to blazing heroic victory. The same powerful narrative inspires Schumann’s blazing Fourth Symphony. The two are contrasted by violinist Adele Anthony’s performance of Mozart’s “Turkish” concerto, a work that combines radiant warmth with sprightly humor, and violin athleticism with sublime poetry.
