Leonore Overture No. 3
Christopher Rouse -
Symphony No. 5
With its iconic opening four-note motif, Beethoven’s most famous symphony, the Fifth, is paired with his
Leonore Overture No. 3. From his opera
Fidelio, the Overture is a musical expression of the triumph of good over evil, and the pure joy and grandeur of the human spirit. The program also features BSO Principal Flute Emily Skala performing Baltimore native Christopher Rouse’s Flute Concerto. A “certifiable hit” (
The Detroit Free Press), Rouse’s composition evokes the traditions of Celtic music.
Join us before the concert for Music Notes LIVE! with WETA's David Ginder beginning at 7 pm in the Music Center at Strathmore.
The program is free to all ticket holders. No reservations are required but capacity is limited, so patrons will be admitted
on a first-come, first-served basis.
