‘BEETHOVEN & BLUE JEANS’
8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$53.
This weekend features what must be one of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra‘s best-loved annual traditions: “Beethoven & Blue Jeans,” which this year promises to be “a thoroughly Viennese affair with sounds of court, nature, and even the city’s downtown clubs,” according to the ASO. The Beethoven piece for this season’s installment is his “Symphony No. 4 in B-flat Major, Op. 60.”
Also in store will be Friedrich Gulda’s “Concerto for Cello and Wind Orchestra.” And making her debut with the ASO is renowned cellist Inbal Segev. The show will be performed again Sunday at 3 p.m.
Segev will also perform at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Clinton Presidential Center, performing Prokofiev’s “String Quartet No. 1 in B minor,” “Op. 50, Heitor Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No. 1” and “George Enescu’s Octet in C Major, Op. 7” with members of the Arkansas Symphony.
