Tribute to the 60th Anniversary of the Republic of Cyprus
The Cyprus Symphony Orchestra, celebrates and honors the landmark anniversary of Cyprus Independence, as well as Beethoven's 250th birthday with two “heroic” works by the great composer: his 3rd Symphony, the Eroica and Egmont Overture. Both composed during the first decade of the 19th century are most fitting for the occasion: Egmont Overture exalts the heroic sacrifice of Count Egmont for the independence of his nation, whilst the masterful Eroica exalts the resilience of the human spirit.
