Beethoven on the Beach, Orchestra Miami’s annual FREE outdoor concert series returns this year with Beethoven on the Beach: Reboot! Now that the orchestra has performed all nine symphonies outdoors for free, it’s time to explore some of Beethoven’s lesser-known works. This year’s concert will feature Beethoven’s complete incidental music to Egmont, Goethe’s famous play about a tragic hero. This dramatic and enduring work will be performed in its entirety with English narration by Gordon Kalton Williams, and will feature soprano Robyn Marie Lamp. Also on the program is Schubert’s Symphony N. 4 in C Minor, D 417. Written when Schubert was only 19 years old, it is only one of two symphonies which Schubert wrote in the minor key. Called the “tragic” symphony by the composer, it takes much inspiration from Schubert’s idol, Beethoven, including modeling the opening theme from Beethoven’s String Quartet Op. 18 N. 4.
Two performances only! Friday, February 25th at 8 PM at Pinecrest Gardens, 11000 SW 57 Avenue, 33156 and Sunday, March 6th, 7 PM at the North Beach Bandshell, 7275 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, 33141.
