Missing the Music Hall this Friday night? Here’s a rare opportunity to listen to a portion of your orchestra performing from this past season. We’ll be releasing some more goodies from the archive over the next few months.
The first selection is the fourth movement of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7. This piece kicked off the 2019–20 season.
Here’s a quote from José Luis about why he chose this selection:
For me, one of the biggest highlights of this past season was the chance to perform the first eight Beethoven symphonies. This is how your Tucson Symphony Orchestra celebrated the 250th anniversary of his birth. It was a gratifying and fantastic opportunity to perform and revisit these amazing works with your Orchestra. All the symphonies are equally important and unique, but Symphony No. 7 is one of the most exciting. It features a whirling dance-energy that’s evident throughout the whole piece. There’s something special about the last movement, Allegro con brio. This fantastic ending made our opening night so exciting last September. Enjoy!
We look forward to the return of your Tucson Symphony Orchestra – the return of live music. The suspension of performances has created an unexpected financial strain. If you find yourself able, please make a donation to show your support. Your gift will be put to immediate good use and provide critical relief to the whole organization.
