Listen for our broadcast of the ASO’s second Masterworks Concert of this season, recorded by Richard Kowal on October 13th in Thomas Wolfe Auditorium. The concert will be broadcast on BPR Classic Tuesday, November 13th at 10 am and Thursday, November 15th at 8 pm.
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.
