Whidbey’s Saratoga Orchestra is having a Birthday Party, and everyone is invited.
[email protected] is the kick off of Saratoga Orchestra’s season-long 250th birthday celebration honoring the great musical master, Ludwig van Beethoven. Join Maestra Anna Edwards and the orchestra in a program highlighting Beethoven’s Symphony No.1, Op. 21 on November 9th at 7:30pm at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts and November 10th at 2:30pm at Coupeville HS Commons. A pre-concert chat will being 45 minutes prior to each performance.
As Beethoven is regarded as one of the most widely recognized and admired composers of Western concert music, his symphonies were praised as “epic,” and “originally masterful” by his contemporaries and have since been feted by generations as cornerstones of Western civilization. As a parallel to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, Saratoga Orchestra explores a newly revived musical work originally written in 1770 (same year Beethoven was born) by Marianne Martines, one of the most prominent musicians and composers in 18th century Vienna, but her compositions are rarely known today. Works by Mendelssohn, Fauré and Bartók are also on the program.
