As part of its regular Great Music Series by mashing together six pieces from the classical music genius Ludwig van Beethoven and the rap’s resident mastermind Kanye West. Led by conductor Yuga Cohler the 70-piece orchestra performed six pieces by the Viannese composer and six tracks from West’s 2013 album Yeezus, including “Blood on the Leaves,” “New Slaves,” “On Sight,” and “Hold My Liqour.”
