Haydn’s Creation has been described as "some of the most lovable and life-affirming music ever composed." It intersperses the Creation Story from the Book of Genesis with delightful responses from Paradise Lost by poet John Milton. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 14 is essentially a song cycle-symphony. Written from his hospital bed, Shostakovich wrote "on the eternal themes of love and death," setting poems by Lorca, Rilke, Apollinaire, and Kuchelbecker. While it may sound like a downer, Shostakovich explained to his audience "My symphony is an impassioned protest against death." He looked to death as an inspiration to make sure that he lived his life to its full. Our season finale features Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, "Eroica," or "Heroic." Beethoven wrote this after resigning himself to the onset of deafness and in it he seemed to work out how he would live, the meaning of his life, as it were. Famously, he dedicated it to Napoleon when Beethoven saw him as a liberator of Europe. When Napoleon crowned himself emperor, Beethoven declared “so he’s a tyrant” and scratched out the dedication with such vigor that it ripped the page. In removing Napoleon, he made the work more universal and that invites us all into the archetypal story.
