“The work of the Archangel Michael”: Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony: March 26, 2016

March 26, 2016 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

Benaroya Hall

Benaroya Hall houses two performance halls in a complex that is thoroughly integrated into downtown Seattle. Occupying an entire city block at the very core of the city, the development celebrates the vital role of performance events while maintaining the continuity of commercial life along one avenue and providing a much-needed public space, in the form of a terraced garden, along another.

Parking Information is available here.

Hector Berlioz was so entranced by the heavenly slow movement of Beethoven's Symphony No. 4 that he claimed it had to have been written by the Archangel Michael and not by a mere mortal. This lyrical symphony is balanced by the high-spirited Rossiniana by Ottorino Respighi, a suite for large orchestra based on short piano pieces by Gioachino Rossini. The soloist for this concert will be Evan Hjort, winner of the orchestra's 2015 Don Bushell Competition, in a performance of Karol Szymanowski's Violin Concerto No. 2, Op. 61.

Venue: Benaroya Hall
Concert Date: 26 March 2016

A concert featuring nationally-known film music historian and commentator Edmund Stone, who joins the Seattle Philharmonic and fellow film buff Adam Stern for a delightful survey of music written for film ("North by Northwest", "Star Trek", "Harry Potter", and others) and movies that used great classical music as background scores (including "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Fantasia"). An afternoon of great music, fascinating insights, and film trivia!

Leonard Bernstein, generally credited with popularizing Mahler's music more than any other conductor and making it a staple in the concert-hall forever, wrote fervently of the music's "apocalyptic radiance". The Philharmonic concludes their 2015-16 season with a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 1, "Titan", a work that baffled audiences at its first performances and is now its composer's best-known work. The concert will feature another major Austro-German symphony, the Sinfonie in einem Satz (Symphony in One Movement) by Bernd Alois Zimmermann, an emotionally shattering work heard in the U.S. premiere of its original version. The Philharmonic's brass section will also be spotlighted in a selection of canzonas by Giovanni Gabrieli.

Venue: Benaroya Hall
