ABOUT THE SHOW
Delayed eighteen months by the pandemic, Young Beethoven commemorates the 250th anniversary of the composers’ birth in 1770. Featuring an ensemble of outstanding West Coast chamber players, the programme presents works that Beethoven composed before the age of thirty. It concludes with his semi orchestral  Septet, a work which was so immensely popular when first written that Beethoven was overheard declaring “I wish somebody would burn that piece! Nobody is listening to anything else I have  ever written!”
 
Designed and narrated by Impresario and raconteur George Zukerman, the Young Beethoven grows exponentially from a Duet – written before Beethoven assigned opus numbers – to the Septet which is his Opus 20. The work is considered a link between the world of the string quartet and the symphony. Just two months after completing the septet, Beethoven issued his First Symphony which is his Opus 21.
