Beethoven’s monumental “Eroica” Symphony and Copland’s melodious and jazzy Clarinet Concerto, featuring David Shifrin, clarinet
South Florida Symphony’s season finale concert commences with the much-loved Adagietto (“little Adagio”) from Mahler’s Fifth Symphony and Copland’s Clarinet Concerto, also referred to Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra (with Harp and Piano). Acclaimed soloist, David Shifrin, joins SFSO for this melodious and jazzy 2-movement concerto, which was originally commissioned by renowned jazz clarinetist Benny Goodman.
SFSO’s magnificent 2021/22 season culminates with one of Beethoven’s most celebrated works: his monumental Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major. The “Eroica” Symphony represents a turning point not only in Beethoven’s career — but also in the history of music — setting a new symphonic template for future composers to emulate. This is truly a “Sinfonia Eroica,” or heroic symphony.
