Often hailed as the birth of the Romantic era, Beethoven’s heroic Symphony No. 3 changed music forever. Originally inspired by Napoleon, Beethoven famously scratched out the dedication to the French general after he crowned himself emperor, betraying the ideals of freedom that Beethoven so loved. Also on the program are Shostakovich’s darkly humorous and haunting Concerto No. 1 for Piano, Trumpet and Strings and the exciting and innovative Music of Air and Fire by Houston composer Pierre Jalbert.
At The Heights at Park Row in Houston, Texas, we believe it’s important to integrate yourself into the community, which is why we suggest attending this event. Meeting new people, having unfamiliar experiences, and joining neighborhood activities is the key to an exceptional lifestyle.
