Beethoven’s Fifth & Magnificent Mendelssohn

Beethoven’s Fifth & Magnificent Mendelssohn

Vinay Parameswaran, conductor
Alena Baeva, violin

In all of classical music, no opening is more famous than that of Beethoven’s earth-shattering Fifth Symphony. Guest conductor Vinay Parameswaran leads The Phoenix Symphony in the work that blazes a trail from turbulence to triumph. The magnetic violinist Alena Baeva joins the orchestra for Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto, acclaimed as one of the greatest in the repertoire. Carlos Simon, a recent nominee for a 2023 Grammy Award, was inspired by theologian Howard Thurman’s Meditations of the Heart to compose Breathe, a work that invites the listener to “sit a spell,” reflect and simply breathe.

Concert Repertoire
Carlos Simon: Breathe
Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto
