JAMES NEWTON HOWARD They Have Just Arrived at This New Level
BEETHOVEN Septet in E-flat major

Acclaimed violinist James Ehnes joins members of the DSO for a special chamber concert performance of Beethoven’s innovative Septet in E-flat major and James Newton Howard’s contemporary They Have Just Arrived at This New Level.

One of Beethoven’s most successful and enduring works, Septet in E-flat major utilizes familiar themes from previous well-loved works and uniquely highlights the artistry of the clarinet, resulting in a delicately thrilling serenade.

Award-winning film composer James Newton Howard, known for his prolific work scoring over 100 films over six decades, shows his versatility with They Have Just Arrived at This New Level. Originally written for and premiered by James Ehnes in 2018 at the Seattle Chamber Music Society’s Summer Festival, the continued partnership of Ehnes and Howard will be on full display. Speaking ahead of the premiere to The Seattle Times, Ehnes described the piece as “…quite impressive in how the narrative and the proportion of it feel so right and fit together.”
