discover beethoven 7

On Saturday, November 6, 2010, Carl St.Clair served as a musical tour guide, exploring the inspirations and influences behind Beethoven’s composition of the Seventh Symphony. St.Clair and members of the Orchestra illustrated this exploration by performing excerpts from the Symphony. This lively discourse was followed by a full performance of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony and an opportunity for Q&A between St.Clair, the musicians and the audience. Following the concert, audience members enjoyed a glass of champagne with LACO musicians, board and staff.

Wade Culbreath wrote a great blog on the history of timpani and on the adams schnellar timpani that he played Saturday night.
