3 Stitches in Time

Featuring Francisco Fullana, Violin Soloist

Three masterpieces: Arvo Pärt’s Fratres speaks of the struggle between the moment and eternity. Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, forgotten for decades until its 1844 revival. Sibelius’s Symphony No. 5 is a piece that the composer rewrote several times to create “a form, more down-to-earth, more vivid.”

Season Finale - Beethoven's Ninth Symphony

Norwalk Symphony Orchestra with the Mendelssohn Choir of Connecticut.
