Overview

Nathalie Stutzmann Conductor

Program:

Beethoven Symphony No. 1
Beethoven Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus

Don't miss this evening of brilliant “firsts” on the Digital Stage. Nathalie Stutzmann takes the podium for her first performance as the Orchestra’s principal guest conductor designate, leading two of Beethoven’s celebrated early works.

Beethoven was just 29 when he wrote his First Symphony. Delightful and high-spirited, it's a fascinating glimpse of the greatness and genius to come.

The wildly popular Creatures of Prometheus marked Beethoven’s introduction to the Viennese stage. With energetic dissonance, the Overture is said to represent Prometheus fleeing from heaven after stealing fire from the gods.

This program runs approximately 1 hour and will be performed without an intermission.

Please note: All Digital Stage events begin with a performance premiere, streaming in real time. Following the performance premiere, the concert will be available for ticket holders to watch on demand for one week.
