Cello Concerto No.9
About This Program
Take in a breath of fresh air with this program dedicated to music specifically from the Classical Period. Originally thought to be by Beethoven, Friedrich Witt’s Jena Symphony is an exquisite piece of musical plagiarism. Performed in its original version, Boccherini’s Cello Concerto represents the highest level of virtuoso string playing of the time. And Beethoven’s 4th Symphony sees the great genius looking back to simpler times before changing the course of music forever.
