From the venue:Three symphonic heavyweights: Verdi, Brahms, and Beethoven offer a â€œfatefulâ€ evening featuring Verdiâ€™s overture to La forza del destino (Force of Destiny), a dark tragedy telling a story as perplexing as the music is captivating. Then, with the GSO Chorus, Brahmsâ€™ gorgeous, heart-rending Schicksalslied will contrast the lives of the â€œblessed onesâ€ in Elysium with the mere mortals here on earth. Incredibly emotional.And, the most famous four notes in classical music, Beethovenâ€™s Symphony No. 5 in C minor is his representation of fate. His genius creates an inspirational work bound together in an incredibly commanding and iconic work.
