Mozart, Beethoven, and Honegger @ Victory Theatre
Jan 22 @ 7:00 pm

Timothy Chooi, Violin
Roger Kalia, Conductor

  • Arthur Honegger Pastorale d’eté
  • W.A. Mozart Violin Concerto No. 5, “Turkish”
  • Ludwig van Beethoven Symphony No. 7

An evening of popular masterworks including Arthur Honegger’s musical impression of a peaceful early morning in the Swiss alps.

Internationally acclaimed violinist Timothy Chooi takes center stage to perform Mozart’s majestic Violin Concerto No. 5. The piece gets its nickname, “Turkish,” due to the sudden switch in the middle of a movement to what is meant to suggest wild Turkish music.

The concert concludes with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, which the composer himself thought of as one of his best works.

One writer describes what many musicians have felt about this piece:“… the final movement zips along at an irrepressible pace that threatens to sweep the entire orchestra off its feet and around the theater, caught up in the sheer joy of performing one of the most perfect symphonies ever written.”
