BEETHOVEN: Egmont Overture THOMAS ADÈS:Violin Concerto, Concentric Paths BEETHOVEN:Symphony No. 3, Eroica Concert Duration: Approx. 1 hour, 50 minutes with intermission. What’s interesting about this concert: • Beethoven’s Third Symphony, a revolutionary work and fitful demonstration of the composer’s mindful intellect working-out themes to their purposeful and powerful conclusions. • Beethoven dedicated the Third Symphony to Napoleon Bonaparte but tore away the reference once Napoleon crowned himself emperor. • Awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2008 for her unique contributions through contemporary music, violinist Leila Josefowicz is an ideal interpreter of Adès’ Concentric Paths.
