What You'll Get
- $15 for one rear balcony ticket on Saturday, February 18, at 8 p.m., at Sunset Center (up to $30 value). This ticket also includes a pre-concert reception with appetizers and wine.
- Beethoven—Coriolan Overture: Inspired by the tragedy of the same name, the Corolian overture portrays the militaristic title character—a Roman general in open rebellion—in a minor C main theme, and the pleas of his pacifistic mother in a tender E-flat minor counterpoint.
- Sibelius—Violin Concerto: Hushed strings cushion the entrance of the violinist in the first movement of Sibelius’s only concerto, transitioning into a melodic solo spiked with dissonance and a third movement of staggering technical difficulty. It’s so difficult, in fact, that the original soloist was unable to successfully play it at the 1904 premiere.
- Brahms—Symphony No. 3 in F Major: Although it debuted in 1883—with devotees of Brahms’s rival Wagner doing their best to sabotage the premiere—this symphony never went out of style. It can be heard in films such as Goodbye Again, in Frank Sinatra’s “Take My Love,” and in Civilization IV.
