Chamber Series: Beethoven Septet
Beethoven Septet in E flat major
R Strauss (arr Hasenöhrl) Till Eulenspiegel einmal anders!
Take Beethoven at his happiest, give him seven virtuoso musicians, throw in a couple of pop tunes and the result is irresistible. But if Beethoven’s Septet is pure musical sunshine, this fantastic miniature version of Richard Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel is sheer knockabout farce – brilliantly played. For today’s RSNO players, it’s all as enjoyable to play as it is to listen to; there’s a reason why they call this ‘the music of friends’. Come and hear for yourself.
Featuring Maya Iwabuchi, Tom Dunn, Arthur Boutillier, Margarida Castro, Christopher Gough and David Hubbard.
