Part of the 2019-2020 Hartford Symphony Orchestra Masterworks Series. We conclude the 2019-2020 season with a true "Ode to Joy" - Beethoven's towering, magnificent Symphony No. 9. The completion of his final and greatest symphony coincided with his total hearing loss, so that by the premiere, a concert soloist had to turn him around a the podium so he could witness the audience's thunderous applause and ovations. Philip Glass's jazzy and soulful Concerto for Saxophone Quartet and Orchestra will be performed by the engaging Hartford-based Resurgam Quartet.
