Edvard Grieg: Symphony in C minor (32 min)
What symphony wins the title of “most mysterious”? Known as the “forbidden” symphony, Edvard Grieg wrote that his Symphony in C minor “must never be performed” right on the score. It’s still not clear why, but the WSO is playing this confident work, filled with positive, youthful energy and fresh musical ideas, anyway.
During this bite-sized concert, you’ll learn about the work being performed, enjoy a taste of orchestral music, and have your curiosity quenched when the conductor answers questions from the audience.
- The conductor introduces the work from the stage at about 11:45 am.
- Can’t make it for 11:45 am? Come for the concert performance at 12:15 pm.
- Stay after the performance for a post-concert Q&A with the conductor at 1:00 pm.
- You are welcome to come and go quietly during UnTuxed performances if you need to.
This is a Relaxed Performance, providing access to exceptional symphonic musical events in an inclusive environment.
