Seeded by ectsymphony on 3 Jul 2018
Author: Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra
The ECSO kicks off the 2017-18 season with a concert full of revolutionary sounds. Richard Wagner’s "Tannhäuser Overture" is representative of the composer’s visionary impact upon opera with his “total work of art” philosophy. Following, acclaimed pianist and Steinway Artist Mark Markham takes to the stage to perform Sergei Prokofiev’s "Piano Concerto No. 3." This concerto is considered a revolution in and of itself as the soloist and orchestra both play important roles in its performance. After the first half, the concert concludes with Ludwig van Beethoven’s "Symphony No. 3." Beethoven subtitled this work Eroica (heroic), and it was originally dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte. Musically, this symphony stretched the parameters of the Classical era, to make way for the Romantic period. For tickets call 860.443.2876 or call the Garde Arts Center at 860-444-7373.
