What You'll Get

Beethoven originally titled his third symphony Buonaparte, but changed the composition's name a few months later, after Napoleon declared himself Emperor of the French. So disgusted was Beethoven by the aggressive tyranny of the leader he once admired that he ripped off the symphony's first page and later replaced it with a new title sheet: Sinfonia Eroica, or the Heroic Symphony. Now the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra plays this mighty piece at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, under the direction of Marin Alsop. Principal oboist Katherine Needleman shines on the lyrical themes and technical fireworks of Baltimore native Christopher Rouse's spirited oboe concerto. The orchestra will also play Brahms' Academic Festival Overture.
