PROGRAM
Beethoven – Violin Concerto
John Adams – Harmonielehre  Live Recording

PERFORMERS
Nashville Symphony | Giancarlo Guerrero
, conductor | James Ehnes, violin

Beethoven’s Violin Concerto has been called “one of the most beautiful and beloved of all concertos.” Overflowing with sweetly singing melodies presented against a spectacular orchestral backdrop, this piece offers yet another view into Beethoven’s singular genius. To be recorded live for a forthcoming release, John Adams’ Harmonielehre is a landmark in its own right, a powerhouse showcase for the orchestra that draws equally on 19th century Romanticism and 20th century minimalism to create work celebrated as  “rapturous” and “incandescent” by The New York Times.
