Beethoven @ 250: “Emperor” Concerto

Monday, July 27, 2020, 6:30 PM
Sun Valley Pavilion, 300 Dollar Rd
Sun Valley, Idaho 83353 United States
Orion Weiss

One of the most sought-after musicians of his generation, pianist Orion Weiss tackles one of the greatest concertos ever written. Filled with joy, beauty, and heartbreaking tenderness, this is not the stomping and thrashing-about of Beethoven’s caricature. From the opening movement’s rising “fountains” of piano to the ever-so-soft transition from second to final movement, the romance of this piece distinguishes it from classical predecessors. The program opens with the Prometheus Overture, a delightful piece which ushered in Beethoven’s most prolific period.

Beethoven @ 250: Symphony No. 2 and Violin Romances

Tuesday, July 28, 2020, 6:30 PM
Sun Valley Pavilion, 300 Dollar Rd
Sun Valley, Idaho 83353 United States
Beethoven @ 250

In his second symphony, Beethoven begins opening up the tightly bound symphonic form he inherited from Haydn and Mozart. He begins with a languid, 33-measure introduction, creates lyrical and funny passages, inserts the first scherzo ever to appear in a symphony, and writes two of the longest codas yet heard in the first and fourth movements. It’s a light-hearted and easy-going work. Beethoven’s two violin romances open the program, charming pieces that helped establish his bona fides as an orchestral composer.

Beethoven @ 250: Orion Weiss in Recital

Thursday, July 30, 2020, 6:30 PM
Sun Valley Pavilion, 300 Dollar Rd
Sun Valley, Idaho 83353 United States
Orion Weiss

This program opens with one of Beethoven’s first published works, his spirited piano trio in G major. A sign of the 24-year old composer’s ambition, it’s one of the first trios ever written with four movements. After that, the mood darkens as Weiss tackles Beethoven’s turbulent and tragic Appassionata. Legend has it Beethoven conceived the raging finale while howling into the wind on a rainy walk through the countryside, returning quickly to his studio to compose the most powerful music written for solo piano up until that point.
