Discover Beethoven’s playful side as Andrés Orozco-Estrada resumes his three-season cycle of Beethoven’s nine symphonies. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 bristles with barely contained energy as he begins to break free of the classical style. Additionally, his high-spirited Symphony No. 8 is full of musical jokes, including a humorous portrayal of the newly invented metronome.

The Houston Symphony continues its relationship with Composer-in-Residence Gabriela Lena Frank with her ghost-story inspired viola concerto La Llorona, commissioned by the Houston Symphony in 2007 for our own Principal Viola Wayne Brooks.
