To celebrate both the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, as well as to mark the 50th anniversary of EMV, and the 30th anniversary of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, this performance is designed to evoke the excitement surrounding the debut of Beethoven’s first symphony on April 2, 1800 in Vienna. This will involve the largest-scale period instrument orchestra ever assembled in Vancouver and will demonstrate the extent to which the regional period instrument scene has grown and flourished on the West Coast in recent years. In addition to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1, the programme will also Mozart’s Symphony No. 40 in G minor and excerpts from Haydn’s Creation with the participation of the Vancouver Bach Choir and the Vancouver Cantata Singers.
“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.” – Ludwig van Beethoven
