A Saturday afternoon in spring couldn’t be more thrilling than hearing Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony, whose bold, majestic score ends on a note of triumph and exhilaration. The concert starts more intimately with Composer-in-Residence Esa-Pekka Salonen’s “Catch and Release” performed by Philharmonic musicians. Afterwards you’re invited to stay for Philharmonic musicians performing original music by students in the Philharmonic’s Very Young Composers program from the Middle East, South America, and New York.
