Beethoven's 2nd with the Memphis Symphony

Jan 19, 2017

The Memphis Symphony Orchestra presents works by Stravinsky, Cantaloube, and Beethoven in the second Paul and Linnea Bert Classic Accents concert, Sunday January 22 at 2:30 at Germantown Performing Arts Center.

Mezzo-Soprano Elizabeth Bishop


The program features Stravinsky's Pulcinella, Cantaloube's Songs of the Auvergne, featuring acclaimed mezzo-soprano Elizabeth Bishop, and concludes with Beethoven's Second Symphony. In this interview, Memphis Symphony Orchestra Principal Conductor Robert Moody and singer Elizabeth Bishop (friends since childhood) discuss playing Stravinsky 2 weeks in a row, the challenges of singing a little-known but beautiful set of songs in a language almost no one knows, and the place of the Beethoven 2nd symphony in the classical repertoire.
