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.
Tickets on general sale from Wednesday 8 May 2019.
