Beethoven - Symphony No. 6 in F major, Op. 68 ("Pastoral")

Friday, November 25, 2016

8:00 pm Verizon Hall

Newly appointed music director of the National Symphony, Gianandrea Noseda returns to lead a program that whirls from dance to jazz to Beethoven. The Milanese maestro has been sharing his love of underappreciated Italian repertoire with our audiences for the past two seasons (with the music of Casella inspiring wild ovations). This season he enchants us with Goffredo Petrassi, whose 1932 Partita celebrates traditional Italian dance forms. Noseda says he loves to conduct it with “fantastic orchestras!” Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major was written around the same time as the Partita, but is heavily influenced by jazz; masterful Georgian pianist Alexander Toradze is sure to impress. Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, the “Pastoral,” is a mainstay of the repertoire, but Noseda says every time he conducts it, the work “opens new windows on the idea of the symphony.”
