Beethoven’s 7th Symphony
Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony is not famous for the fire and muscle of his Third and Fifth, but rather for the slow and pensive second movement. A rhythm that feels like the pulse of life runs as a current under a soulful theme full of beauty and longing. Organist Greg Zelek returns to the mighty Bryan Concert Organ to begin the program with Joseph Rheinberger’s lush Second Organ Concerto.

Greg is the Principal Organist of the Madison Symphony Orchestra and Curator of the Overture Concert Organ and Series.
