<em>From the Heart</em>


Concert Program III

From the Heart

The “musician as hero” was invented by Beethoven when he chose to triumph over deafness and fulfill his artistic destiny. Beginning in 1803, a decade of masterpieces cemented his reputation not only as the world’s most famous musician, but also as an artist who was unequivocally his own muse. His triumphs over adversity opened the doors of musical imagination to composers everywhere, from the young, awestruck Schubert to the visionary women composer-performers Louise Farrenc and Clara Schumann.

This concert is preceded by a free afternoon Prelude Performance at 2 p.m. by the 2023 International Program artists.
