BEETHOVEN: Violin Concerto

MESSIAEN: “Zion Park and the Celestial City” from Des canyons aux étoiles
RAVEL: Daphnis et Chloé, Suite No. 2
It might be common today, but Beethoven’s daring and “unplayable” concerto was written about 50 years too early for the violinists of his time.
Concert Highlights Include:
· We move with Messiaen from earthbound glories to the mysteries of the sky above, as seen from the red rock cathedrals of Southern Utah.
· Ravel’s breathtaking ballet score Daphnis et Chloé was considered by Stravinsky to be not only his finest work, “but also one of the most beautiful products of all French music.”
· Beethoven’s masterpiece might have languished even longer if not for the efforts of a 14-year-old virtuoso named Joseph Joachim, who performed it in 1844 under the baton of Felix Mendelssohn.
