The young American composer and conductor John Frederick Hudson, who studied composition with Paul Mealor, has written a concerto especially for these performances. The soloist will be the brilliant percussionist Drew Andreatta, also from America. The orchestra returns to more familiar territory with Beethoven’s 7th Symphony, which Beethoven himseld described as 'one of my best works'.
