Kansas City Symphony’s season finale features three majestic works for chorus and orchestra. Beethoven maintained a lifelong admiration for the great German poet, Goethe. Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage is a setting of two Goethe poems that journey from hushed mystery to triumph. Shostakovich wrote his youthful Symphony No. 2, “To October,” to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. Beethoven’s epic final Symphony, culminating in the composer’s revolutionary and inspirational setting of Schiller’s “Ode to Joy,” caps the season in glorious, heavenly sounds. Note: G.
