Spokane Symphony Masterworks 2: Beethoven’s Soul
James Lowe, conductor
Kristina Ploeger-Hekmatpanah, chorale director
Spokane Symphony Chorale
William Ferguson, tenor
While Beethoven may be best known for his “greatest hits,” like Symphony No. 5, Music Director James Lowe has mined the archives for jewels that deserve to be heard and that reflect Beethoven’s inner life. His struggles with encroaching deafness, unrequited love and loss are contrasted with his Fourth and sunniest symphony, showing Beethoven’s unshakable belief in the triumph of the human spirit over adversity and the perennial nature of hope, even in life’s darkest moments.
