WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Ferdinand Hiller -The Destruction of Jerusalem, Op. 24 (1840)( US Premiere ) He was an intimate of Mendelssohn, of Goethe, and a champion of Chopin, Liszt, Berlioz, and Brahms. As one of the most influential Jewish composers and musicians of his day, Ferdinand Hiller witnessed virtually the whole of music in nineteenth-century Germany, even visiting Beethoven in his final days. Hiller's grand 1840 oratorio The Destruction of Jerusalem is a stirring biblical parable with singular personal conviction. Enjoy an illuminating pre-concert talk with American Symphony Orchestra Composer-in-Residence Richard Wilson, at 1:30 p.m. in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse, Rose Building, Tenth Floor, 70 Lincoln Center Plaza.
