Beethoven and the VSO
Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
Ludwig van Beethoven left a remarkable legacy of music for future generations to hear and enjoy.
Between March 29 and April 7, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Bramwell Tovey, will be performing all nine Beethoven symphonies, in chronological order, in six concerts.
Adding to this extraordinary experience will be the performance of Beethoven's First Piano Concerto and Violin Concerto by superstars Lang Lang and Anne-Sophie Mutter. This special event, broadcast on CBC Radio 2, is expected to enthrall audiences across Canada.
Vancouver Foundation gave the Vancouver Symphony Society a grant of $100,000 to assist with the Beethoven festival.
