Beethoven, Symphony No. 7

The favorite three B’s—Bach, Beethoven and…Bass? Yes. The extraordinary double bassist Xavier Foley is joining us for our season finale, performing Bottesini’s virtuosic Gran duo concertante with Concertmaster Denise Dillenbeck, and his own sweeping composition, For Justice and Peace. Clarice Assad’s Suite for Lower Strings opens this love-fest for the lowest-sounding instrument of our string family. Each playful movement highlights famous and recognizable themes by J.S. Bach in this fantasy suite. To close our season, Artistic Partner Jeffery Meyer leads the orchestra in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, a sublime epic filled with Beethoven’s optimism in the face of adversity, and ultimately hope for the future.
