The WSO (A)bsolute Classic Series Presents: Beethoven & Bach

Saturday, Oct 3, 2020 at 7:30PM

Centennial Concert Hall

Although Beethoven’s 250th birthday celebrations were unexpectedly halted, the WSO’s Beethoven 250 events continue with two works from the great composer beginning with the Egmont Overture: the powerful, telling story of Count Egmont through Beethoven’s exquisite music.

WSO Concertmaster Gwen Hoebig takes centre stage with arguably the most popular of Bach’s surviving violin concertos, followed by the graceful ‘Lyric’ for Strings by African-American composer George Walker. We close the evening with Beethoven’s powerful and beloved Symphony No. 7.

Egmont Overture - Beethoven

Concerto No. 2 for Violin and String Orchestra - Bach

Lyric for Strings - George Walker

Symphony No. 7 - Beethoven


Centennial Concert Hall, 555 Main Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba
