The Triple SUZANNE BEIA | KARL LAVINE | CHRISTOPHER TAYLOR Our return home to the Capitol Theater melds new works by the orchestra’s first-ever Composer in Residence Dr. Bill Banfield with his impressive contemporary, Patrice Rushen, to the belated birthday boy himself, Beethoven.

Harp and Haydn

Fri February 25, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Capitol Theater, 201 State St.
Madison, WI 53703 United States

We welcome the return of harp virtuoso Yolanda Kondonassis to perform Alberto Ginastera’s Harp Concerto of 1965, written for the great harpist of the twentieth century, Nicanor Zabaleta. Written in an idiomic style for the harp including many special effects, it is a spectacular work to enjoy live. Prokofiev’s Sinfonietta is an early work from 1909 and was dedicated to his conducting teacher, Nikolai Tcherepnin of the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Following further revisions, this version from 1930 shows a lighter, more humorous side to…

The work tells the story…

The Emperor

Fri April 22, 2022 @ 7:30 pm
Capitol Theater, 201 State St.
Madison, WI 53703 United States

John O’Conor’s gift for Beethoven never disappoints. Loved by our orchestra and audience alike, O’Conor is a statesman and musical icon. Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, Emperor is gargantuan, so named for its grandeur and highly sophisticated form. This is Beethoven at his most intense, personal, and sublime. So much so that in this capacity we are treating it as the main course or the steak, putting it in the second half, more like a symphony, with Janáček and Cherubini as appetizers…
