HAYDN: Overture from L'isola Disabitata
BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op 93
ELGAR: Concerto for Cello, Op 85
STEVEN DOANE, Cello
Our 38th Season opens with two incredibly passionate composers as we present Beethoven's Symphony No. 8 and Elgar's Cello Concerto, performed by Steven Doane. (see full bio below) Often considered a misunderstood work, this symphony was one that Beethoven considered to be better than his previous symphonies, despite their incredibly widespread acclaim. And Elgar's concerto is remarkable for a number of reasons, starting with its very first notes, played only by the solo cello, that immediately draw in listeners.
