Budapest Festival Orchestra

 

“It’s hard to think of an orchestra that can stir greater thrills than the Budapest Festival Orchestra under Iván Fischer,” wrote the New York Classical Review.

Pianist Richard Goode joins the Budapest Festival Orchestra for this all-Beethoven program after performing the complete Beethoven Piano Concertos with the ensemble in a “truly revolutionary” recording. (New Yorker) The concert also features the UMS Choral Union in a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. As the University of Michigan celebrates its bicentennial in 2017, this program commemorates the role of the volunteer UMS Choral Union in the University’s history, as an organization that has brought together the campus and the community in making music for nearly 140 years.

Please note: The artists have requested for late seating to take place after Beethoven’s Symphony No 1. Because we anticipate that arriving late and missing this part of the program may be disappointing, we are making extra efforts to ensure our audience for this concert is aware of the policy.

A Prelude Dinner, sponsored by Journeys International, precedes the performance. Reservations: 734.764.8489.

PROGRAM

Beethoven Symphony No. 1 in C Major, Op. 21

An Ode to Magical Thinking

What if we choose to buy into Beethoven’s magical thinking — that there is a joy so profound that it might just bring us back together? You know, in the spirit of trying something drastic.
