Bernstein & Beethoven
Enrico Chapela – ínguesu
Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphony No. 8
Leonard Bernstein – Symphony No. 1, “Jeremiah”
Two of music’s most towering giants kick off our 35th season. Beethoven’s Eighth is filled with joy and wit, while Bernstein’s “Jeremiah” – featuring Cantor Tracey Scher – mines the territory of faith and the human condition. First, Mexican composer Enrico Chapela starts the concert off with a nationalistic thrill-ride: a musical depiction of Mexico’s victory over Brazil to win soccer’s 1999 FIFA Confederation Cup.
