Marin Alsop will conduct the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra this weekend in concerts that feature perhaps the most recognizable piece of western art music in the world, paired with a new piece by a composer with Baltimore roots.
Of the nine symphonies Beethoven composed, it’s the one in the middle, the Fifth, that represents for many people the epitome of classical music. The BSO will play it four times, beginning tomorrow night, and on two of those occasions, they will also give the local premiere of a new work by Baltimore-born Christopher Rouse, a composer who has had a long association with Marin Alsop, and with the BSO.
Today, Tom talks about compositions old and new with Marin Alsop.
Marin Alsop will conduct the BSO in four performances this weekend. All of the concerts include Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. The programs tomorrow night and Sunday afternoon at the Meyerhoff in Baltimore also include a new symphony by Christopher Rouse. On Friday and Saturday night, Marin will preside over the first “Off the Cuff” concerts of the season at both the Meyerhoff and at Strathmore Hall in Bethesda. More information at the BSO website.
November 15 is the deadline for the BSO's "Passport" program, which allows people under 40 unlimited access to concerts for $75.
