BEETHOVEN Leonora Overture No. 3
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 9

Beethoven’s setting of Friedrich Schiller’s Ode to Joy, found in the last movement of the ninth symphony, is one of the most well-known passages in the canon of Western classical music. Known also as the “Choral Symphony,” it was the first symphony in which voices were featured. PSO is joined in this concert by the forces of Penrith City Choir, Warrimoo Chorale, and Academy Singers. In a continuation of PSO’s collaboration with the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, the four soloists, Jessica Westcott, Barbara Jin, Evan Kirby, and Tristan Entwistle, have all studied at that institution.

The Leonora Overture No. 3 was one of four overtures written by Beethoven in connection with his opera, Fidelio. The most popular of the four, Leonora No. 3 sets the scene to perfection in anticipation of the ninth symphony.
