The APO is joined by conductor Graham Abbott, who will become our orchestral weather man for the evening. Abbott will present and explain the way that Beethoven illustrates the phenomenon of storms - through the use of the woodwind section to minic birds feeling threatened, or the way that violins can sound like rolling thunder.
