First “Conversations With Beethoven” Episode Presented By The CSO


CSO Conductor Zooms 

First Of 9 Beethoven Talks

To continue serving classical music fans in time of COVID, The Catskill Symphony Orchestra took to Zoom Saturday night with a program featuring  Conductor Maciej Żółtowski in the first of a series of “Conversations with Beethoven.”  You can hear it at the “Catskill Symphony Orchestra CSO” YouTube channel.  In the first episode, Żółtowski discussed all nine of Beethoven’s symphonies – some with cited performances.  He presented anecdotes, including an alleged “tantrum” after Napoleon rose to power and the conspiracy around the unlucky ninth symphony that proved to be the last for many composers, Beethoven included. In the next episode, Żółtowski will delve deeper into the man behind the music, exploring the love-life of an unmarried Beethoven. The episode date and time to air is yet to be announced, however, the event will be followed by a Q&A zoom. For access to the zoom, email CSO Executive Director Thomas Wolf at Also, donations are welcome at or by mailing checks  to the Catskill Symphony Orchestra to P.O. Box 14, Oneonta, NY 13820.  (Chrystal Savage/
