Max Tan and Friends: Beethoven at Home - Symphony V and Coriolan Overture

Fri, December 11, 2020 7:00 PM, EST

Host

Dear Friends,

This is the first of several (I hope) 'Beethoven at Home' livestreams in which the program will feature the Beethoven symphony cycle arranged for violin and piano. Published in the 19th century during a time when it was not easy for the public to access this music in the orchestral concert hall, these arrangements were commonly produced not only to generate business but those who wanted to hear the music to perform them at home, attempting to grasp at the essence of the musical work. During a time when orchestras have canceled their seasons and we can't experience this music live, I hope this program will fulfill some of that spiritual desire.

Joining me for this first program is Ying Li, who has collaborated with me on my last Groupmuse in October. She is a graduate student at Juilliard and we both hope that this program is not just an intimate chamber music collaboration but full of robust, orchestral energy! Please join us!

Warmly,
Max

Program

Ying Li

Beethoven: Coriolan Overture (arr. Hugo Ulrich)
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 (arr. Hugo Sitt)

Please note: Symphony No. 6 was originally on this program but Ying and I have decided to postpone it to another Groupmuse as the program would be almost 2 hours, much longer than the expected 45 minute program!

Hi everyone!

Ying and I are so looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

An important change: we have decided to remove Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 on the program. We all know most Groupmuse programs are around 45-60 minutes long, and with both symphonies, the program will come close to around 2 hours. As we'd love to spend time with you all, we feel simply Symphony No. 5 and the Coriolan overture would be a wonderful start to this project of symphonic arrangements. I have also sent out a request to Groupmuse to lower the recommended contribution for this performance to reflect this. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

-Max
