In their 14th consecutive SMF performance, the world-renowned Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO) returns to the Lucas stage under maestro Robert Spano. Joining them are SMF’s Mr. & Mrs. Curtis G. Anderson Associate Artistic Director Daniel Hope and festival favorites David Finckel and Wu Han, Artistic Directors of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Music@Menlo. Frequent collaborators with Hope in recent years, Finckel and Han are distinguished for bringing a “unity of mind and spirit” to Beethoven (Chicago Tribune). The Beethoven “Triple” is a masterful balancing act, weaving three distinct voices into a joyous whole. This exuberant program begins with the Overture from Egmont, a set of incidental pieces composed for the Goethe play of the same name, and closes with the joyful “Spring” Symphony by Robert Schumann.
Egmont Overture, Opus 84
Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano in C Major, Opus 56
Symphony No. 1 in B-flat Major, “Spring”
