Did You Know?

  • Beethoven was almost completely deaf while he composed his Ninth Symphony which went on to become one of the most performed symphonies in the entire world.
  • Austrian composer Franz Schreker spent the first quarter of the 20th century as one of Europe’s most famous composers. World War I and an intense wave of antisemitism unfortunately all but extinguished his influence in the musical world.
  • Slovak conductor Juraj Valčuha is quickly becoming a fan favorite here in Minnesota. Terry Blain of the Star Tribune described Valčuha’s November 2019 performance with the Minnesota Orchestra as “one of the most musically rewarding concerts of the past few seasons.”
