LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN: Overture and Heil se idem Tag ("Hail to the Day") from Fidelio
JESSIE MONTGOMERY: I Have Something To Say [Premiere, May Festival Co-Commission]
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 9
In Jessie Montgomery’s I Have Something to Say, voices sing, “We were blessed to be born, when many doors had been torn open for us to be free.” Her new work, inspired by historic women past and present, gives young voices a prominent space. Celebrations of justice ring through Beethoven’s early (and only) opera. Later in life, and nearly deaf, Beethoven tore through the silence composing his ultimate celebration of life—the Ode to Joy.
This full performance will be streamed live from Music Hall and made available to view online immediately afterward (for a 24 hour period).
