FATEFUL BEETHOVEN

BEETHOVEN MARATHON

Celebrate the OM’s 40th season with Beethoven’s nine symphonies conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin. With four concerts in three days, this is sure to be a true musical marathon! Experience the bold classics that continue to dazzle audiences 250 years later.

Each program features two or three Beethoven symphonies. You’ll also hear pieces written by the four winners of the OM’s composition competition in honour of its 40th season.

Da-da-da-dum… Fate is knocking at the door! There’s nothing quite like the four powerful notes that kick off Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. But before things get serious, the program keeps it light with the ever-optimistic and joyful Symphony No. 8 and Symphony No. 4, which is closer in style to the composer’s early Classical work.
