Ballade for Flute, Strings, and Piano
Symphony No. 3 "Eroica"
Approx. 67 Minute Performance
Beethoven’s heroic and revolutionary symphony is paired with Sri Lankan-Canadian composer Dinuk Wijerante’s Polyphonic Lively. Plus VSO principal flute Christie Reside is featured in Swiss composer Frank Martin’s haunting Ballade.
Large symphonic pieces require more musicians on stage. Due to the pandemic, to keep the musicians safe and provide increased physical distancing on stage, the VSO has changed the programming of its Symphonie fantastique January 21-23 concerts to the program noted above. This performance has no intermission.
