Tucson Symphony Orchestra: Beethoven Septet
Friday, December 04, 2020, 4:00 PM PST
Category: Virtual Concerts & Programs

Beethoven’s Septet, composed in 1799, was such a popular work that Beethoven later regretted writing it. Much like his First Symphony, the Septet harks back to Haydn or Mozart in style; the older and more innovative Beethoven dismissed it for lacking seriousness. The cheerful and elegant Septet is a tour de force for the clarinet, which requires nearly equal virtuosity to the violin.

  • Michelle Abraham Kantor, violin
  • Ann Weaver, viola
