Beethoven Triumphal March from Tarpeja
Beethoven Triple Concerto
Beethoven Pastoral Symphony
This concert brings us three inspirational works from Beethoven himself.
First comes the Triumphal March from Tarpeja. The daughter of Tarpeo, Tarpeja became the divine guardian of the Capitoline Hill in Rome. Today, the Rock of Tarpeja bears her name.
Beethoven completed his Triple Concerto for violin, cello, piano and orchestra in 1806. His only concerto to feature more than one instrument, it was a new venture for Beethoven, combining the elements of a grand concerto with a group of soloists more usual in chamber music. We welcome the Pettman Ensemble for this special celebration of Beethoven's genius.
The star of this concert is surely Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. “We walk through sunlight, beside murmuring streams and with small creatures and birds that sing. We reach a gathering of country folk and a sudden storm. This is followed by Beethoven’s ‘Shepherds song’. A divine symphony of Pan!”
