English Symphony Orchestra 2019
Coriolan Overture, Op.62
Violin Concerto in D, Op.61
Symphony No.4 in B flat, Op.60
Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony and Violin Concerto came to life on his desk at the same time, yet between them they reflect the full breadth of his creative genius. The searching spirituality of the monumental Violin Concerto is brought to life by the young virtuoso Chloë Hanslip, already recognised as one of the great soloists of her generation.
In the second half, the resurgent ESO, fast becoming Town Hall favourites, bring virtuosity and verve to Beethoven’s rustic and humorous Fourth Symphony, a surprisingly bright and cheerful work, sandwiched as it is between his 3rd and 5th – two titans of 19th century symphonic writing.
Pre-Concert Talk (6.30pm to 7pm): Presented by ESO conductor, Kenneth Woods.
