This intriguing 50-minute concert at Blackfriars Playhouse celebrates two “forces of nature”: Beethoven and the total solar eclipse occurring over the U.S. on August 21, 2017. Composer-in-residence Zachary Wadsworth presents the world premiere of a work for harp and chamber ensemble commissioned by SMF. It is followed by Beethoven’s brilliant String Quintet in C, nicknamed “Storm” for the explosive character of the work’s final movement.
