DSSO: To Persevere
Intimacy and profoundness meet boldness and resilience in this Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra performance. Guest soloist Geneva Lewis will play the famed “Joachim Stradivarius” — the actual instrument Josef Joachim played when he premiered Johannes Brahms’ Violin Concerto in 1879.
Beethoven’s Symphony No.5 then brings down the house in a fury of unrelenting persistence. Following a compositional idea that takes the audience from darkness to light, Beethoven perfectly illustrates his own personal struggle with his oncoming deafness: Through struggle and perseverance, he leads us to victory and triumph.
