While the funeral march from Beethoven’s 7th symphony contains one of the most monumental moments in music, it is the lighter, joyful moments in the symphony that prompted Wagner to declare this work “The Apotheosis of the Dance.”

Bernstein’s exhilarating Symphonic Dances from West Side Story provide the thrilling center of this program, which begins with John Adams’ suave and extraordinary Foxtrot for Orchestra, the Chairman Dances.
