Gluzman Plays Beethoven on March 25

Mar 13, 2023

On Saturday, March 25, the New Bedford Symphony Orchestra presents Gluzman Plays Beethoven at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center. Under the direction of Music Director Yaniv Dinur, the orchestra will perform works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Anna Clyne, and William Walton. The guest soloist for this concert is violinist Vadim Gluzman.

Recognized as one of today’s top violinists, Mr. Gluzman will perform Beethoven’s immortal violin concerto, a piece full of beauty and invention that is born out of four drum strikes. English music rounds out this program: Anna Clyne’s masterful treatment of the orchestra in Masquerade, and William Walton’s First Symphony – arguably the greatest symphony written in the 20th century, full of intoxicating rhythms and virtuosic orchestral playing.

Gluzman Plays Beethoven will take place on March 25, 7:30 p.m., at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center in downtown New Bedford. Please join Maestro Dinur and Mr. Gluzman for the pre-concert talk in the theater at 6:30 p.m. Doors to the theater will open at 6 p.m. for the talk and 7 p.m. for the concert.
