Beethoven Resurrected

Beethoven Resurrected brings to life the works of Beethoven mixed with accessible, modern repertoire. Michael Torke's Ash is a sharp, rhythmic work that answers the question "What would Beethoven sound like if he was alive today?" Following the Torke is the rarely heard Piano Concerto by masterful modernist, Joan Tower. "Homage to Beethoven" is inspired by several themes from his sonatas including the Tempest and Waldstein sonatas. Robert McDonald joins the orchestra to perform this work rarely heard work in the Austin area! The concert will conclude Beethoven's third symphony, Eroica, a revolutionary work with ideas that proved to be the impetus for the romantic era of music. One of Austin's favorite bands/quartets, invoke, will open up 30 minutes before showtime! Come early, grab a brat and a beer, and enjoy this exciting new initiative with us!
