The heroic adventure continues with Beethoven’s Overture to Leonore, the story of a heroine rescuing her husband from death in a political prison. The program finishes with Bruckner’s powerful fourth symphony, a work that is subtitled “The Romantic” due to its underlying program relating to medieval knights, nature, and birdsong.
