Beethoven

Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80

Brahms's
Nänie


Conductor
James John


Beethovenís Ninth Symphony concludes with a glorious setting of Schillerís famous ‘Ode to Joy,’ highlighting themes of freedom, unity and fellowship, which are particularly poignant at this time throughout the world.  Brahmsís ethereal setting of Schillerís poem Nänie is an extraordinary ‘requiem in miniature,’ providing comfort to those who have experienced loss.  Paired together, these works highlight Schillerís genius, and create an evening that is deeply meaningful and uplifting.

The Creation


James John
Music Director

Haydn's <I>Creation
Completed in 1798 and inspired in part by Handel's Messiah Haydn's beloved oratorio The Creation is a delightful musical portrayal of the Book of Genesis.  Dramatic, exhilarating, and at times quite humorous, it is a wonderful, uplifting masterwork.
