Beethoven’s Heroic – Harmony from Discord

November 19, 2017 @ 3:00 pm

Mount Baker Theatre

This year’s Harmony from Discord concert features a moving piece composed by 4-time Emmy nominee, Sharon Farber. Ms Farber was inspired by the courageous and inspirational life of Holocaust survivor Curt Lowens, who helped save ~150 Jewish children as part of the Dutch Resistance. We are very pleased to have her join us for our performance of her work.

Sometimes called “Jacqueline du Pré in a farmer’s body,” soloist Amit Peled often surprises audiences with the ways he breaks down barriers between performers and the public, making classical music more accessible to wider audiences.

We close with one of Beethoven’s most iconic works, his Symphony No. 3, Eroica. This work was originally dedicated to and named after Napoleon, but upon hearing that Napoleon had declared himself Emperor, Beethoven went into a rage and renamed the work Eroica.

Bestemming: Concerto for Cello, Orchestra, and Narrator – Sharon Farber (Narration written by Sharon Farber, Richard Stellar, & Beth Wernick)
Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. 55 (Eroica) – Ludwig van Beethoven

A pre-concert lecture about the repertoire by Dr. Ryan Dudenbostel starts at 2:15. (Please note time change.) Admission is free; but these are very popular, and fill fast!
