Concert Information

The concert opens with Beethoven’s powerful Egmont overture; an emotional tone poem depicting a nobleman fighting for freedom.

The zest and brilliance of Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto – that incredibly began life as chords sketched out on a napkin - is lively with dance and invention and today comes to us courtesy of soloist Matthias Wollong.

Closing the afternoon is Symphony No. 25, written by a 17-year-old Mozart in 1773. This dramatic symphony is characteristic of a new dramatic genre in music that was taking Europe by storm.
