About the performance

Presenter and educator Richard Vaudrey and the musicians of the MSO present a journey of orchestral discovery: Masterly musical madman and curmudgeonly orchestral architect: Beethoven!

Introduce your students to the iconic innovator, the deaf rebel of classical repertoire. The man, the music, the prodigy, the pauper, the virulent virtuoso. Explore how the 250 year-old talent of the ferocious German genius still shapes the sound-world of today.
