A 19th-Century Viennese Pairing: Beethoven & Schubert

CMA Ep. 19.jpg

This week Classical Music Amarillo will present music by Franz Schubert and Ludwig van Beethoven, composers whose music will be featured on the upcoming Amarillo Symphony program on January 20th & 21st!

On January 20th and 21st, pianist Rodolfo Leone will join the Amarillo Symphony to perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, while the orchestra will perform Franz Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony. Tune in to Classical Music Amarillo this week to hear the Amarillo Symphony's past performance of Schubert’s Rondo for Violin and Strings, as well as Beethoven’s Violin Concerto (which was performed by Simone Porter, accompanied by the Amarillo Symphony in January of 2020). Before we get back to 19th century Vienna, though, we will open the program with Christopher Theofanidis's Rainbow Body, a work that relates color and sound in the same vein as Michael Torke's Bright Blue Music , which the Amarillo Symphony will also play this weekend.

HPPR's new host for Classical Music Amarillo, Dr. Kimberly Hieb, brings her rich knowledge of music history to our regional classical music program.
