A rare opportunity to sit in on rehearsals and learn how a performance comes together.
Tracing the Classical Tradition
Beethoven’s influence on future generations of composers cannot be overstated: Brahms was widely considered Beethoven’s successor, and Dohnányi composed in the Romantic/Classical tradition, rather than the folk-infused Nationalist style of his contemporaries Kodály and Bartók.
