About this concert
Take a musical journey with the MSO.
Want to learn more about some of the greatest music ever written? Host and MSO cellist Nicholas Bochner, with the MSO on stage, will take a musical journey through well-known classical pieces and share the context, history and story behind these works. Through performance, conversation and interaction, the MSO will give you the best music lesson of your life.
At this ‘Discover’ event we will explore one of the most popular classical music composers, Ludwig van Beethoven. We’ll interrogate the musical, historical, and personal significance of Beethoven’s contribution to the Western canon, including excerpts of some of his most famous works, finishing with a deep dive into Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony.
Ears Wide Open is MSO’s talks and ideas program celebrating our music and artists through informative presentations, conversations, behind the scenes demonstrations and participatory workshops.
Please note, this event will be filmed with cameras in the auditorium.
