Beppu Citizen Philharmonia Orchestra (Orchestra)
The orchestra was formed in October 1993 as the Beppu Citizen's Symphony Orchestra by musicians active in Beppu City and musicians from within and outside the prefecture who support the orchestra. The concert was well received. Her biannual concerts at the Beppu Beacon Plaza have become a regular event for the citizens of Beppu. Since 2014, the orchestra has performed at Beppu City's "Otozen Town Concert" and changed its name to the present one in April 2016.
This is a piece of music from the middle period of Beethoven's career and is one of the works before the famous 5th "Fate". While "Destiny" has many parts of anguish, from conflict to joy, No. 4, which we will perform this time, is full of happiness and has a bright, stretching sound, as if we can find a ray of hope in these difficult times.
The Members of the Orchestra
Beethoven's Fourth is a very difficult piece, with few opportunities to perform it. I would like you to watch the string ensemble and other aspects of it.
It's been a long time since I've heard live sound and it was so wonderful and beautiful!
I thought that live music was really good!
It was my first time to attend. I was amazed at how wonderful it was. I don't know much about classical music, but this made me want to listen to classical music too!
