Twenty-six-year-old violin superstar Randall Goosby makes his Orchestra and SPAC debuts performing Bruch’s youthful yet expressive Violin Concerto No. 1.

Also featured on this program is composer Jessica Hunt’s Climb, a letter-through-time to Beethoven, expressing her gratitude for his work. Hunt relates Beethoven’s personal struggles to her own experience with chronic illness.

A vast ode to heroism, revolution, and freedom, the “Eroica” is considered by many to be the greatest of not just Beethoven’s symphonies, but the greatest of all time. From its indelible opening theme to its thundering finale, the “Eroica” Symphony is one of Beethoven’s most popular works.
