The Power of Seven

Throughout history, the number seven has been associated with mystery, perfection and alchemy. Discover the power of seven through these rarely-performed gems, each composed for a different combination of seven instruments. Saint Saëns’ delightful Septet in E-Flat Major opens the concert with strings, piano and trumpet. It is followed by Ravel’s Introduction and Allegro, which was written to showcase the expressive range and elegant finesse of the harp. The concert closes with the lively Beethoven Septet in E-Flat, which the composer eventually resented for its extraordinary popularity.
