Quantcast

Houston Symphony presents Beethoven 7

eventdetail

It captivated listeners so completely when first premiered that an immediate, mid-symphony encore was demanded. More than 200 years later, from Hollywood to the concert hall, the bewitching “Allegretto” from Beethoven’s Seventh speaks to the heart just as intently - a vast, brooding midnight amidst a Symphony of sunny exuberance and surging high spirits. Kirill Gerstein kindles enough piano pyrotechnics to light up all of Texas with Liszt’s fiendish, explosive Totentanz (“Dance of Death”).
