Teddy Abrams of DSO: The Lasting Impression of Beethoven

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

What makes Beethoven endure? WDET’s J. Carlisle Larsen talks with Detroit Symphony Orchestra Assistant Conductor Teddy Abrams about the DSO's month-long series of Beethoven symphonies, and about the powerful composer that created them. Abrams says though Beethoven sometimes struggled to connect with individuals, he cared deeply about people and the human condition. That's part of what makes Beethoven's music stand the test of time.

You can catch the DSO's performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony this Thursday, through Sunday, February 24th.
