Music Around Town

Blossom Music Festival

When: Sat., July 9 2016

Beethoven poured his heart and soul into his Third Symphony, a work he began as a way to honor Napoleon and the French Revolution. The work, which features a funeral march and a glorious finale, marks the start of the Romantic Era in music. Tonight, the Cleveland Orchestra performs the piece as the Blossom Music Festival commences. The concert begins at 8 at Blossom. It also features a recent work by the English composer Thomas Adès along with Belá Bartók’s 20th-century classic Music for Strings, Percussion, and Celesta. Tickets start at $24. Fireworks follow the concert, weather permitting. (Niesel)
