Jeremy Rothman, Vice President for Artistic Planning, says the program includes Beethoven’s Symphony Number 7, Sibelius’s Violin Concerto and Symphony Number 1 by Prokofiev.
“Very classical in nature, sudden surprises and dynamics, extremely challenging for the Orchestra and it definitely has an accent to it. Then, in the second half of the program, you hear Beethoven’s 7th Symphony which is infused with all these dance rhythms and Beethoven was absolutely genius to use the least amount of material to say the most profound things,” says Rothman.
Performances are October 14th, 15th and 16th at the Kimmel Center. Find out more at PhilOrch.org.
