Tito Muñoz, conductor

Ligeti: Violin Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 “Eroica”

Tito Muñoz brings another dose of Beethoven to the 2016/17 Season with Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony, a towering journey of emotion and invention marking the transition to the Romantic period in classical music. Symphony No. 3 heralds the well-known marcia funebre, or funeral march. Grammy-nominated violinist Caroline Goulding also joins the program for György Ligeti’s Violin Concerto, a brilliant synthesis of avant-garde explorations and traditional melodic and formal conventions that the BBC calls a “cornucopia of effects and techniques, a wild collage of atmospheres and colors.”
