Guarantors' Week: Beethoven and Prokofiev

About This Concert:

Nathalie Stutzmann makes her Minnesota Orchestra conducting debut with Beethoven's own favorite symphony, his sunny Fourth.

During the second week of October, the Minnesota Orchestra will celebrate its 7,000+ Guaranty Fund donors. This week's concert performances will be dedicated to all whose generous contributions ensure that the Minnesota Orchestra can continue to bring incredible music experiences to our community. Ticket sales only cover a quarter of the Orchestra's annual budget; therefore, donor support is absolutely critical. To all of our donors: thank you for making this exciting season of music possible!

Fun Facts:

  • Nathalie Stutzmann is a quadruple-threat musician: she plays piano and bassoon, and her gorgeous contralto voice has been heard in Carnegie Hall, Vienna’s Musikverein, and the Proms in London. Lately her conducting career has exploded as she has formed her own orchestra, called Orfeo 55.
  • Prokofiev’s First Symphony embodies a light and buoyant 18th-century spirit, but his later works would inflame Soviet-era critics for decades with his brash composing style.
  • At the heart of the concert, FRIENDS competition winner Bixby Kennedy performs Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto, his last completed work and undoubtedly one of the most poignant.
