Brahms Liebeslieder-Walzer Op 52 (excerpts)
Haydn Trumpet Concerto
Bach Concerto in D Major BWV 972
Beethoven Symphony No. 3, Eroica
This concert features some of classical music's greatest inventors. Haydn wrote his trumpet concerto for the newly-created keyed trumpet which allowed him a previously unheard of melodic freedom. Likewise, Beethoven's Eroica Symphony does away with 18th-century sensibilities and instead brims with startlingly raw emotional content, huge, sudden dynamic changes, and demands fizzing virtuosity of its players at every turn.
