Beethoven Festival Symphonies Nos. 1 & 3


This is a community-wide celebration of beginnings, including Beethoven’s First Symphony, in which the young composer mastered the Classical style advanced by his heroes Haydn and Mozart. The epic Third Symphony, stretching far beyond the scope of anything that came before it, turned the pages of history and launched the Romantic era in all its power and grandeur. Teens across King County reflect on Beethoven’s revolutionary legacy to create a new work to preface his early masterpieces.
