Plainfield Symphony Orchestra presents "The Maestro & Apprentice, 1792"

(PLAINFIELD, NJ) -- The Plainfield Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of their acclaimed music director Charles Prince, invites you to experience their next concert on March 25, 2023 at 7:00pm, “The Maestro and Apprentice, 1792.” Haydn’s Sinfonia Concertante will showcase four PSO principal players and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 (“Eroica”) will conclude this uplifting program.

One of the most important relationships in Beethoven's early life, and certainly the most famous, was his tutorship under the Austrian composer Franz Josef Haydn in London during 1792.

The Sinfonia Concertante in B flat major (Hob. I: 105), by Franz Josef Haydn was composed in London between February and March 1792. A sinfonia concertante can be described as a cross between a symphony and an instrumental concerto with multiple soloists. This concertante is one of the finest examples of the genre and features four PSO soloists: violin (Evelyn Estava), cello (Jameson Platte), oboe (Nancy Vanderslice) and bassoon (Lee Doswell). The music blends the different sounds and virtuosity of the four solo instruments with elegance and intensity.

Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. 55, by Ludwig van Beethoven, is known as the Eroica Symphony and offers a vast ode to heroism, revolution, and freedom. The work premiered in Vienna on April 7, 1805, and was grander and more dramatic than customary for symphonies of the time. It was Beethoven's largest solely instrumental work. This four-movement work includes: a first movement that takes its listeners on a wild journey through the emotional thematic extremes, a second movement Funeral March, a third movement Scherzo and a fourth movement theme with ten variations.

Come join them in person to experience these deeply moving and personal works. Tickets can be purchased online at their website. You may also view the livestream performance on their website and on YouTube (Plainfield Symphony Channel). This program is made possible by funds from the Union County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
