This concert pairs two works that represent new groundbreaking directions for both composers: a violin concerto by a jazz legend in the case of Marsalis, and a symphony that forever transformed symphonic writing in the case of Beethoven and his Third symphony, the “Heroic” symphony. Virtuoso violinist Brendon Elliott also makes his debut with with Myssyk and the SVBF Orchestra in what will surely be an unforgettable evening.
