During Midsummer’s Music’s Emperor Concerto & Jeannie Yu program, audiences will hear works by Beethoven, Haydn and the lesser-known Finnish-Swedish composer Bernhard Henrik Crusell. Virtuosos Jeannie Yu, piano; and Heather Zinninger, flute, are the featured performers for the series.
Yu masterfully takes on Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto, and Zinninger is featured in the chamber version of Symphony No. 94 in G Minor – often called the Surprise Symphony – by Haydn. Crusell’s Quartet in D Minor, Op. 8 was a popular romantic piece throughout the 19th century.
Performances are July 15, 7 pm, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Sister Bay; July 16, 5 pm, at Hope United Church of Christ in Sturgeon Bay, in memory of James Hoehn, MD; July 19, 7 pm, at the Kress Pavilion, in Egg Harbor in memory of Ann Lewis; and July 21, 7 pm, at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County in Ephraim.
