Beethoven & Mendelssohn

Mendelssohn’s “Scottish” Symphony tells the tale of the composer’s travels through Scotland, with a brooding introduction, a lightning-quick scherzo, a sumptuous song without words, and a majestic conclusion. Audiences will delight at the return of Adam Golka after his critically acclaimed last-minute fill-in appearance in 2018. He plays Beethoven’s bold and massive Piano Concerto No. 1, a dance between piano and orchestra reflective of the composer’s early period. The two monumental works are paired with Cordero’s Marianda, a short symphonic piece that recreates night and daybreak in the countryside and tropical forests of Puerto Rico.
