About This Performance
Nathan Bales World Premiere
Ludwig van Beethoven Ah! perfido
Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 3, “Eroica”
The Chamber Orchestra and Music Director Dirk Brossé return to the Perelman Theater with Beethoven’s triumphant Symphony No. 3, “Eroica”. The concert opens with a world premiere from Steven R. Gerber Composer-in-Residence Nathan Bales which brilliantly plays with the sounds and melodies of Beethoven’s symphony in a companion piece written especially for our ensemble. Brazilian-American soprano Sophia Hunt brings her “clean, rich, and lush sound” (American Vocal Arts) to Beethoven’s powerful, show stopping concert aria Ah! perfido.
