Beethoven’s Eroica: A Salute to Heroes

William S. Anderson Memorial Endowed Concert

As we return to a “new normal” with LIVE music, we begin with a salute to the heroes of the pandemic—the first responders, medical personnel, delivery drivers, and all those whose jobs suddenly carried greater risk—Austin Jaquith’s driving musical portrait Heldenleben 2020, or “Heroic Life 2020.” Heroism also marks the music of Beethoven’s Third Symphony, originally dedicated to Napoleon before he crowned himself emperor, but then furiously retitled “Sinfonia eroica, Composed to Celebrate the Memory of a Great Man.” From bolts-out-of-the-blue opening chords to exhilarating finale, the Symphony’s majesty and drama, extraordinary scope, and bold harmonies all proclaim a new era in music. Returning to the DPO is violinist Philippe Quint for Mendelssohn’s sparkling jewel of a concerto.
