The Beethoven Septet Experience

Saturday, August 17 –

Event Time: 1:00pm

Union Hall
24 Central Street, Rockport

Dedicated to the Empress Maria Theresa, Beethoven’s magnificent Op. 20 Septet epitomises the eighteenth-century Classical serenade and divertimento tradition, and was premiered alongside his First Symphony in 1800. Its consistent popularity and numerous transcriptions worried the young composer as he felt this work overshadowed some of his other masterpieces but it arguably remains the finest septet in history. Join this stellar group of Screen Door resident artists for a highly personal and intimate exploration of one of Beethoven’s masterworks.
