A Hero's Life

Susie Park

Friday, November 14, 2014 | 8pm
Miller Auditorium
Raymond Harvey, Conductor
Susie Park, Violin

Prelude talk by Maestro Harvey at 7pm.

Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 is paired with Strauss's tone poem Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life) in a program tied to the love interests of their respective composers. The summer of 1812 marked the famous (and un-sent) letters to Beethoven's "immortal beloved." In Strauss's semi-autobiographical work, a solo violin portrays the composer's complex and quixotic wife.
