Featuring 'American Seasons'.
May 21st, 2021
Our HOPE concert ended with Beethoven Symphony n.6, named “Pastoral”. This symphony was written just after the famous 5th Symphony, known for the “Fate motive” filled with uncertainty and tension. After such an explosion of emotions, Beethoven decided to look for answers in Mother Nature, writing the first programmatic symphony. As well as Beethoven, HSO found inspiration in nature and the cycle of seasons as a metaphor for changes. Many composers were inspired by the Seasons, with Vivaldi's perhaps the most famous of them all.
"Our CHANGES puts the spotlight to the great American Composer Philip Glass and his American Seasons, in contrast with the amazing Argentinian Composer Astor Piazzolla (centennial celebration!) and his Estaciones Porteñas (Porteñas Seasons)." - Alexandra Arrieche, Music Director
