Pastoral Beethoven

Maison symphonique October 18, 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.

Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral,” will transport you from the hustle and bustle of the city to the rolling hills of the countryside. The piece echoes contemporary environmental concerns, evoking the fragility of our natural surroundings. With its ominous second movement, the epic Symphony No. 7 is one of the most evocative pieces in the repertoire. From the deep woods to high drama, get ready for an escape from your day-to-day.
