BSO Music Presents: Beethoven Symphony No. 2

James Conlon continues his exploration of Recovered Voices with a rare performance of the Lyric Symphony by Alexander von Zemlinsky, a onetime star of Vienna’s music scene who fled Nazi Germany and died in obscurity in New York. Opera standouts Melody Moore and Lucas Meachem bring the huge emotions of this ambitious score to life. Conlon, who “conducts like a man with Beethoven encoded into his muscle memory” (The Washington Post), takes a romp through Beethoven’s jovial Second Symphony.

Recovered Voices is a special initiative of LA Opera that seeks to bring the music of composers suppressed by the Holocaust to the stage. It was founded in 2006 with generous support from Marilyn Ziering.
