Inspired Journeys: Heroes and Landscapes
8:00 pm, Helzberg Hall Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Kansas City, Missouri
Join the Kansas City Chamber Orchestra and Music Director Bruce Sorrell on an exploration of some of the most inspired and thrilling music of all time:
Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony, inspired by the heroic ideal that Napoleon represented, is one of the greatest works ever composed. Hearing it in the grand Helzberg Hall, but with the intimacy of a chamber orchestra, all the wonderful internal workings of Beethoven’s great mastery become evident to the ear.
The gorgeous Italian countryside served as muse for Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony, reflecting place and experience and radiating the joy he felt as he toured Italy. Sunny, dramatic, reverent – it is truly one of the most pleasurable symphonies to hear in the entire canon.
