Beethoven 8

Handel and Haydn Society, Boston

Period instrument conductor Václav Luks, an H+H audience favorite, offers a high-spirited program that’s sure to delight, keeping you on your figurative toes while he leads from his literal ones. After a cheerful Louise Farrenc overture and Beethoven’s tantalizingly dramatic Piano Concerto No. 3, Luks continues his tour through the Beethoven symphonies: This time, it’s a rousing rendition of the composer’s effervescent Eighth.
