Fateful Beethoven

Maison symphonique October 20, 2024

Beethoven Marathon

The uncontested master of the symphony, Beethoven left his mark on music in a way few composers have. With four concerts in three days, Yannick Nézet-Séguin will deliver his vision of these bold classics that continue to dazzle audiences 250 years later. It’s sure to be a marathon to remember!

Each program will feature two or three Beethoven symphonies, rounded out by the premiere of a piece written by a winner of the Beethoven Heritage competition, an initiative spearheaded by the OM and its artistic director. These young composers bring a modern perspective to Beethoven’s influence on today’s world and to his work’s social and political themes.

Da-da-da-dum! Fate is knocking at the door. Symphony No. 5 opens with four of the most powerful notes in orchestral music, while Symphony No. 4 intertwines Classical structure with Romantic expression. As for the “Little” Symphony No. 8, humour is sprinkled into the drama, paving the way for the famous Symphony No. 9.
