Beethoven's Shadow

Franz Schubert Symphony no. 8 "Unfinished"

Johannes Brahms Double Concerto for Violin & Cello
   Sarah Off, violin
   Mathieu D'Ordine, cello

The 1800s must have been a difficult time to be a composer.  Writing music in the wake of Beethoven was perilous, bold, and downright daring.  Franz Schubert and Johannes Brahms were two of the most successful and engaging masters who overcame Beethoven's shadow and propelled music forward.  

In true form to Boulder Symphony's season title "Inspiration Interrupted," Schubert's Unfinished Symphony leaves the creative mind hanging, while the Brahms' Double Concerto completes the circle.

Featuring Boulder Symphony's own Mathieu D'Ordine on cello alongside violinist Sarah Off, this duet of two contrasting string voices paints the beauty inherent in the music of Brahms.

Join Ron Nadel for a lively pre-concert discussion at 6:15 PM in the Chapel.
