What's Interesting

  • Like the final symphonies of Beethoven, Mahler and Dvořák, Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 is an awe-inspiring revelation.
  • Schubert sketched his Great symphony just one year after Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy.”
  • Guest artist Alban Gerhardt performs a cello concerto written for him and that he premiered at the BBC Proms. By turns frenetic, passionate and ethereal, the concerto was written by the exciting composer Unsuk Chin, who “has a knack for binding together seemingly irreconcilable extremes” (The New Yorker).
  • Join us after the SAT JAN 25 performance to experience a different side of Alban Gerhardt’s artistry, in a cabaret-style setting awash in candlelight and wine. Details.
