Beethoven’s growing deafness caused him severe isolation and loneliness. He even contemplated suicide. In the end, art kept him going, and out of this dark period, he created one of the most revolutionary works, the Symphony No. 3, “Eroica”.
As we come out of our own dark period of isolation from this pandemic, we can once again celebrate great art together. On this 20th anniversary of 9/11 we remember those who were lost, and also those lost to the pandemic. In honor of those, we present Samuel Barber’s emotional Adagio for Strings.
Cellist Hilary Clark will be featured in the world premiere of the Cello Concerto by Daniel Baldwin.
