Beethoven 2020: Symphony No. 7
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.
