    Opening Concert: Beethoven and the VoiceLIVESTREAM (sept 11) - INDOOR (sept 11) This first concert of the season offers a psychological drama of Beethovinian proportions. A symphonic poem before its time, the Coriolan overture gives way to the sublimes voices of Karina Gauvin and Marie-Nicole Lemieux in a whirlwind of tormented and impossible love.

    Charles Richard-Hamelin performs Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4LIVESTREAM (sept 15) - INDOOR (sept 12) Beethoven was known in his time as an immensely talented pianist and improviser. A master of his instrument, he invested his piano sonatas and concertos with a rare creative genius, at once free, intimate, dramatic and magisterial.

    Poems of Love by Mozart and BeethovenLIVESTREAM (sept 22) - INDOOR (sept 12) The two works on this programme have particular resonance in the lives of their composers. While Mozart finished his “Haffner” Symphony only three days after his marriage to Constance Weber, Beethoven wrote his only Concerto for Violin shortly after his secret engagement to Therese Von Brunsvik.
