From the enigmatic to the iconic, join our renowned principal guest conductor Edo de Waart on a journey through three monumental works. Ludwig van Beethoven‘s Great Fugue has puzzled and entranced audiences and critics alike for nearly 200 years, leading Stravinsky to call it “an absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever.” Superstar violinist Leila Josefowicz joins the Symphony in a performance of one of her signature pieces, John Adams’ virtuosic and “hyper melodic” Violin Concerto. Then brace yourself as Beethoven’s most famous four notes in history signal the start of a musical roller coaster ride, a journey from struggle to triumph.
