BEETHOVEN 7 & DESSNER PREMIERES
MAY 3 & 4 | Music Hall
Louis Langrée conducts two pieces from Cincinnati’s own Bryce Dessner alongside Beethoven’s Seventh.
Bryce DESSNER: Mari
Bryce DESSNER: Piano Concerto (CSO Co-Commission, US Premiere)
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 7
Friday Morning & Saturday Evening A
If Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is known as a musical embodiment of fate, his Seventh carries the spirit of freedom and liberation, with catchy, dance-like melodies woven throughout. Bryce Dessner, founder of Cincinnati’s MusicNOW Festival and a member of the Grammy-winning band The National, shares two of his works for orchestra.
