About the event

Milton Crotts, conductor

The Young Masters celebrates three notable young German masters of the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic eras with masterpieces they composed in their 30s. Carl Maria von Weber composed the Oberon Overture at 39 years old, and then died mere months later. Bach was only 36 when he composed his Brandenburg Concerti, of which No. 5 is perhaps the most beloved; Beethoven was 32 and contemplating suicide when he wrote his playful, boisterous Symphony No. 2. In The Young Masters we are treated to brilliant works that, for the most part, heralded the beginnings of brilliant careers.


Carl Maria von Weber, Oberon Overture - Full orchestra

Johannes S. Bach, Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 - Chamber orchestra with Hanako Hjersman, violin, Bradford Malbon, flute, and Stephen Klein, Harpsichord. 

Ludwig Van Beethoven, Symphony No. 2 - Full orchestra
