NOV 5 + 7


Laurence Equilbey, star conductor of Paris’s Insula period instrument orchestra and accentus chamber choir, makes her H+H debut accompanying you into Beethoven’s pastoral landscape…with bird calls, a babbling brook, a summer storm, and merrymaking with friends. Definitely the softer side of the master! A sensation in 19th century musical Paris, admired by Berlioz and Schumann, and a champion of women’s rights, Louise Farrenc demands to be heard! The H+H premiere of her symphonic masterpiece—alive with melody and drama—will have you saying: where has she been all my life?
