“...it’s febrile intensity and sonorous beauty made [this performance] something special.” — The Times on Dean’s Beethoven Interpretation

MARCH 20 & 21, 2020

In 1802 Beethoven was overcome with depression as the irreversible nature of his deafness became undeniable. He wrote a “testament” to this fact, ending it with the insinuation he would end his life. Myth has it he then arose from his desk and launched into creating the passion and triumph of the Eroica Symphony. Brett Dean, conductor and violist, leads from the music stand both his own work, inspired by Beethoven’s testament, and the great 3rd Symphony.

THE PRESENTATION OF THIS SERIES IS MADE POSSIBLE, IN PART, THROUGH THE GENEROUS ASSISTANCE OF THE CHAN ENDOWMENT FUND AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA.

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Classical Traditions at the Chan Centre series and can be added on to a Beethovenfest pass.
