Beethoven’s enduring masterworks emerge new and fresh when played upon the instruments for which they were conceived. Though Beethoven is often thought of as an overly serious composer, his “Triple Concerto” shows him in entertainment mode, with subtlety and humor that reveals itself most clearly when performed on gut strings. After intermission, experience the kaleidoscopic view of Beethoven’s musical landscape inspired by his country strolls in the “Pastoral Symphony,” as performed by a period-instrument orchestra of 44 musicians.
-Beethoven’s “Triple Concerto for Violin, Violoncello, and Fortepiano in C major, Op. 56”
-Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68 ‘Pastoral’”
