Bach/Webern: Fugue for Six Voices from Musical Offering
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Minor
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 in A Major

  • Considered the most substantive of Bach’s thirteen-piece “Musical Offering,” the Fugue is dedicated to Frederick the Great; Webern’s instrumentation gives the music universal appeal.
  • Yekwon Sunwoo is the 2017 Gold medal winner of the prestigious Cliburn Competition.
  • At the premiere of Symphony No. 7 Beethoven remarked that it was one of his best works.
  • Allegretto (the second movement) has been used in a wide variety of films including Mr. Holland’s Opus, The King’s Speech and X-Men

The first Tucson Symphony Orchestra concert on January 13, 1929 featured Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7.
