Presented by Early Music Vancouver

To celebrate both the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, as well as to mark the 50th anniversary of EMV, and the 30th anniversary of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, this performance is designed to evoke the excitement surrounding the debut of Beethoven’s first symphony on April 2, 1800 in Vienna. This will involve the largest-scale period instrument orchestra ever assembled in Vancouver and will demonstrate the extent to which the regional period instrument scene has grown and flourished on the West Coast in recent years. In addition to Beethoven’s  Symphony No. 1, the programme will also include Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony and excerpts from Haydn’s Creation with the participation of the Vancouver Bach Choir and the Vancouver Cantata Singers.

Alexander Weimann, music director; Pacific Baroque Orchestra; Paula Kremer, artistic director; Vancouver Cantata Singers; Leslie Dala, artistic director; Vancouver Bach Choir

Pre-concert talk at 2:15pm.


Presented in association with the Chan Centre through the support of the Chan Endowment Fund at the University of British Columbia.
