BEETHOVEN’S SYMPHONY NO. 2
June 10, 2021 at noon
Davyd Booth: Second Violin, The Philadelphia Orchestra
Erica Peel: Piccolo, Flute, The Philadelphia Orchestra
Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor
MOZART Overture to The Magic Flute
M. WAGNER Little Moonhead
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 2
Three captivating pieces that celebrate the magic of late spring giving way to summer. Yannick and the Orchestra begin the concert with Mozart’s bewitching Overture to The Magic Flute and Melinda Wagner’s Little Moonhead (Three Tributaries Inspired by Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 by J.S. Bach), a piece filled with flowing harmonies. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 captures the power of art to lift the human spirit. As the composer struggled with the loss of his hearing, his dedication to art fueled his drive to continue making music. The work is infused with dashes of rowdy humor and a Romantic sensibility that are among his hallmarks.
