Cape Ann Symphony Mother’s Day Concert Saturday, May 9 feat. BSO Soloists

Last month (in this post) I pointed to the roots of today’s music.  This month, the Cape Ann Symphony takes the whole thing one step farther.  First of all, they’re playing one of Beethoven’s most extraordinary compositions, the 7th symphony.  My guess is that the audience will jump to their feet after this finale just as they did last month for Beethoven’s first piano concerto, featuring David Deveau.

Beethoven’s 7th has been used in a number of films, most recently the 2nd movement in a tremendously powerful scene in which Academy Award winner Colin Firth as King George VI delivers a triumphant speech after struggling all his life with a terrible stutter.  Check out that scene in this video:

Now imagine hearing the whole symphony live.

And if that wasn’t enough, they’ve invited Boston Symphony Orchestra father and daughter team Richard and Erin Svoboda as soloists for Michael Gandolfi’s Double Concerto for Clarinet and Bassoon.  Plus you’ll hear an overture by Rossini, the most popular opera composer of his time.  You really do want to be there!  Get tickets here.
