Beethoven: Eroica

Marcelo Lehninger conductor
Douglas Cardwell timpani
Ingela Onstad soprano

Villa-Lobos: Bachianas brasileiras No. 5
Fischer: Symphony with Eight Obbligato Timpani
Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 in Eb Major, Op. 55, “Eroica”

We begin with Villa-Lobos’s haunting and sensuous Bachianas brasileiras No. 5 and continue with Fischer’s beautiful and unexpectedly melodic Symphony with Eight Obbligato Timpani, featuring our Principal Timpanist Douglas Cardwell. While Beethoven’s “Eroica” marked the end of the classical era and began the romantic period, his 3rd Symphony did something even more important for us – celebrating the ideals of liberty, equality, and brotherhood.  Brilliant Brazilian-born Marcelo Lehninger conducts.
