Windham Orchestra: Beethoven & Brahms

April 8 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Windham Orchestra spotlights two musical geniuses in a special concert Sunday, April 8. Two profoundly different works — Piano Concerto No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 15 by Brahms and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony — are on the program at the 3 pm concert at the Latchis Theatre, Main Street, Brattleboro.

Brahms’ work opens the concert, with Windham Orchestra Musical Director Hugh Keelan at the piano, and Jessie Pierpont as guest conductor. Keelan describes the Piano Concerto as a work conjuring up “a single man staring down the universe, a solo protagonist, incredibly sure of himself.”
The second piece performed, Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony (Symphony No. 6), is as gentle as Brahms’ work is powerful, and will take the audience on what Keelan calls “an emotional journey, to a profound, pastoral calm.” He adds, “It is an absolutely extraordinary work, not like anything else Beethoven created.”
The cost of admission is a donation of any amount.
