Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor
Beethoven Symphony No. 2
Beethoven Symphony No. 3 ("Eroica")
The Philadelphia Orchestra continues its cycle of Beethoven symphonies at Carnegie Hall, pairing his Second and Third with a piece composed by Jessica Hunt to celebrate Beethoven at 250. This enlightening program demonstrates a significant turning point in Beethoven’s ever-widening concept of possibility. Hunt’s Climb forms a deeply personal thematic connection not only to Beethoven’s music, but also draws inspiration from his personal struggles and relates them to Hunt’s own experience living with chronic illness.
