Orchestra Miami presents “Beethoven on the Beach” its annual popular free outdoor concert series. The 2023 version is entitled “Unfinished”, and the program centers around two works by famous composers which were left unfinished.
The first piece is the little-known 10th Symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven, which was left unfinished at his death in 1827. At the time of his death, Beethoven left several sketches of two of the movements. Orchestra Miami will perform what exists of this symphony for the first time in South Florida, in a realization by musicologist Barry Cooper. This little-known piece by one of the world’s most famous composers will be paired with a very well-known unfinished work, Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony N. 8 in D Minor, D. 759. Also on the program is the Overture and Entr’Actes to Bizet’s famous opera Carmen, and the overture to an unfinished comic opera by Camille Saint-Säens. The 42 musicians of Orchestra will be led by Artistic Director Elaine Rinaldi.
