BEETHOVEN - Romances Nos. 1 and 2 for violin and orchestra
BEETHOVEN - Symphony No. 7
Legendary Israeli-born violinist Itzhak Perlman joins the Boston Symphony Orchestra as both soloist and conductor to begin the 2012-2013 season with an all-Beethoven Opening Night at Symphony. The program starts with the composer's lyrical early Romances No. 1 and 2 for violin and orchestra. Completing the program is the danceinfused Symphony No. 7 which the composer himself acknowledged as one of his finest works.
