Beethoven 2020: Symphony No. 7
Abravanel Hall
123 W S Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101, USA Get Directions


Ever wonder what people feel when they see our red rock country for the first time? We have an answer for you!

Concert highlights include:

Imagine what Utah’s incomparable natural landscapes might ‘sound’ like to a visiting European in Messiaen’s powerful Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks.
Listen as the virtuoso musicians of the Utah Symphony perform the highly spontaneous and emotionally powerful Symphony No. 7, a work Beethoven himself considered one of his best.
Watch guest pianist Francesco Piemontesi tackle the richly inventive Schumann Concerto, written as a testament of love to the composer’s wife Clara.



Thierry Fischer, conductor
Francesco Piemontesi, piano
