Beethoven, the Heroic

Jean-Despréz Hall, Maison du Citoyen
25 Rue Laurier, Gatineau, QC, Canada

3rd symphony, op. 55 Ludwig van Beethoven (arr. Natalia Ensemble)
For flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, violin, viola, cello and double bass

If you had been present at the premiere of Beethoven’s 3rd symphony on April 7, 1805, you would have been shocked. This music was so revolutionary from all points of view: duration, musical novelties, intensity, vision, depth, etc.

When you hear Ensemble Prisme play this 9-instrument chamber version of the Natalia Ensemble, you will experience another shock, to realize that even with as few as nine musicians, all the thoughts, music, energy and genius of this timeless work remain, intact.

We never tire of discovering and rediscovering this symphony (which was Beethoven’s favorite). This version, which constitutes a tour de force of arrangement and interpretation, will rekindle your enthusiasm for this unparalleled work.

The nine members of Ensemble Prisme invite you to this grandiose evening to mark the end of a year of fabulous music.
