Bach, Beethoven & Beyond

November 21 @ 8:00 pm
Kleinhans Music Hall, 3 Symphony Circle
Buffalo, NY 14201 United States

Two early 20th century composers have grand masters to thank in this classic program conducted by JoAnn Falletta. Beethoven’s Septet led to increased early fame for the young composer. The extraordinary and familiar Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 by J.S. Bach was an inspiration for Stravinsky’s Dumbarton Oaks, and Respighi’s Ancient Airs and Dances Suite No. 3 was influenced by Baroque-era Italian works.
