Saturday To-Do: 'Eroica'

Posted By on Sat, Mar 1, 2008 at 12:13 PM

8 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $16-$55.

Renowned classical saxophonist Eugene Rousseau has earned such acclaim in his decades-long career that he has a saxophone mouthpiece named after him. In two performances — Saturday night and again on Sunday at 3 p.m. — he'll perform a meditation on “recent troubling world events, natural and human” with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. The ASO will also perform Beethoven's Third Symphony, better known as Eroica. Often cited as the beginning of Romanticism, the symphony is as dynamic and complex as anything Beethoven produced.
