Masterworks III
Rivers & Mountains

BEETHOVEN Lenora Overture No. 3
PIAZZOLLA Aconcagua; Concerto for Bandoneon
SCHUMANN Symphony No. 3 (Rhenish)
David Amado, conductor
Lidia Kaminska, bandoneon

We begin Masterworks 3 with the third of four tries Beethoven made writing an overture to his only opera, Fidelio. Leonore Overture no. 3 is the most symphonic of the pack—expansive, dramatic, and moving. We’ll follow with Astor Piazzolla’s Concerto Aconcagua, inspired by the eponymous peak and packed with Argentinian flare, drama, and beauty. It is a rare showpiece for bandoneon (accordion’s Argentinian brother) and orchestra that virtuoso Lidia Kaminska will bring to a full boil. After intermission, Schumann’s third symphony. Filled with his trademark lyricism, tenderness, heart-on-sleeve sentiment, and outsized passion, it is a masterpiece of German Romanticism.
