Beethoven’s Eroica

Andrew Grams, conductor
Angelo Xiang Yu, violin


Stravinsky – Octet
Prokofiev – Violin Concerto No. 1
Beethoven – Symphony No. 3 Eroica

Guest artist, violinist Angelo Xiang Yu, with his “stupendous technique and musical voice all his own,” will perform Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No.1 , which premiered in 1923 at the Paris Opera in a program that held Stravinsky’s Octet, also featured in these concerts. The performance concludes with Beethoven’s triumphant Symphony No. 3, Eroica, which he wrote after emerging from a deep depression recommitted to a life in music.
