BeethovenFest Virtual Finale

March 15, 2020, 2pm

Otto Tausk, conductor
Saleem Ashkar, piano

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 4
Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 “Pastorale”
In response to the COVID-19 crisis and subsequent closure of Vancouver’s performing arts spaces, Maestro Otto Tausk and the musicians of the VSO gathered in an empty Orpheum Theatre to livestream their performance of Beethoven’s 6th Symphony on March 15, 2020. We hope it brings you comfort and calm through this turbulent time. Please note – this concert was streamed on March 15, 2020 before bans on mass gatherings and recommendations to distance 2 metres apart were implemented. The VSO cares deeply for the health and safety of its musicians and has taken great care to adhere to new health authority recommendations on social distancing as they arise.
