BSO: Drama and Romance

  • Show Information

The overture to Tannhäuser presents a kind of synopsis of the operatic action, interweaving the struggle between sacred and profane love. The drama continues through Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto, one of his most daring keyboard works. Imbued with a genuinely Romantic voice, it is ardent and melancholy, heroic and ethereal, anguished and whimsical. The Eighth Symphony is the most nationalistic of all Dvořák’s symphonies. While unashamedly buoyant and uplifting, it is also sweetly reflective, and filled with the most delightful musical wanderings, as if Dvořák’s ideas were captured in their purest form and committed immediately to manuscript.
