Brandenburg and Beethoven

  • Omaha Conservatory of Music 7023 Cass Street Omaha, NE, 68132 United States (map)

Two Immortals launch our 2018 Summer Concert Series: Johann Sebastian Bach, likely the greatest composer who ever lived, and Ludwig van Beethoven, the fearless thunderer who bowed to no one as he kicked classical music to the next level. First up, Bach’s magnificent Brandenburg Concerto No. 1. A dozen players sweep you along its exuberant path, from brisk opening to jubilant finale. Beethoven’s crowd-pleasing Septet lets you enjoy the “softer side” of the iconic composer. Its lightness, high spirits, and infectious melodies made it all the rage in the composer’s own time and are guaranteed to delight you, too.
