SPPAC Presents Simon Rattle conducts Beethoven’s “Pastoral”
Saturday June 1 – 7:30 pm
$12. Members save 10-20%.
Simon Rattle, Conductor. Barbara Hannigan, Soprano Philadelphia Orchestra, recorded at Kimmel Center on Sunday, May 19, 2013 Program: Webern – Passacaglia Berg – Three Fragments from Wozzeck; Ligeti – Mysteries of the Macabre; Beethoven – Symphony No. 6 “Pastoral”
Featured in Disney’s Fantasia, the “Pastoral” Symphony paints vivid scenes of gathering thunderstorms, wandering brooks, and breezy country sides. Both Webern’s Passacaglia and Berg’s Wozzeck received their U.S. premieres in Philadelphia as part of Stokowski’s vision for 20th-century music. Barbara Hannigan stuns audiences with her dramatic portrayal (and provocative costuming) in scenes from Ligeti’s thrilling opera, Le Grande Macabre.
