A Hero's Life
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.
