Description

Dr. Vincent P. de Luise, Cultural Ambassador for the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra, and frequent lecturer on the humanities, presents a musically enhanced visual presentation entitled, Beethoven, Unvarnished.  

Ludwig van Beethoven is considered by many to be the most important composer in western civilization. A genius of indefatigable strength, defiant courage, and artistic vision, it was he who changed the course of western music, introducing romanticism and ushering in the modern orchestra and modern piano. He gave the world so many incomparable masterpieces -the Missa Solemnis, the last string quartets and piano sonatas, the Diabelli Variations, and the magisterial Ninth Symphony that culminates in a paean to humanity, the "Ode to Joy" and so much more.  Join Dr. Vincent de Luise for a fascinating tour of Beethoven’s life and his music and his eternal legacy.
