Why See Detroit Symphony Orchestra- Beethoven's Seventh?
Au revior Napoleon
In winter 1813, reeling from the recently ended French occupation of Vienna, Beethoven premiered his sweeping Seventh Symphony, a dynamic and uninhibited tribute to the soldiers fallen and wounded in the battle against Napoleon's forces. Stirring a feeling of patriotism in the audience, they immediately demanded from the composer an encore the 2nd movement, Allegretto.
Jukka-Pekka Saraste steps up to the podium to lead the DSO with violinist Augustin Hadelich lending his talents to this jubilant and well-loved work. Aditionally, the program will include recitals of Britten's Violin Concerto and Sibelious' Pohjola's Daughter.
Performance date: 23 March 2018
