Beethoven: Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus
Mozart: Symphony No. 41 “Jupiter”
David Ludwig: Songs from the Bleeding Pines (WORLD PREMIERE)
Beethoven: Fantasy for Piano, Chorus and Orchestra “Choral Fantasy”

Creatures of Prometheus is Beethoven’s only full-length ballet and shows his lighter side. Mozart’s longest and final symphony “Jupiter” was said to be an inspiration to Beethoven with its five simultaneous melodies. Beethoven’s “Choral Fantasy” is considered a forerunner to his Ninth Symphony and includes piano and vocal solos as well as chorus. Inspired by “Choral Fantasy,” Composer in Residence David Ludwig draws on its themes in his world-premiere composition, Bleeding Pines which provides a commentary on today’s environmental crisis.
Guest artist: Pallavi Mahidhara, piano
