Cyprus Symphony Orchestra: IRONY AND JOY  Beethoven Cycle Continued

Markideio Municipal Theatre Pafos

Time: 8.30 p.m.


The tribute of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra to the unparalleled genius of Beethoven continues with his Symphony no. 8, a lighthearted masterpiece containing passages that could even be perceived as musical jokes. This comical angle – irony and joy! – is what connects Beethoven’s symphony with the other two works of this programme: While Rossini’s La scala di seta — an operatic farsa comica — is genuinely comical, Richard Strauss’ Burlesque flirts with the idea of a witty parody of the “serious” concerto genre.
