Friday 22 November 2019
BEETHOVEN Symphony No 1 (26’)
BEETHOVEN Symphony No 3 ‘Eroica’ (47’)
EMMANUEL KRIVINE – Conductor
In 1805, Beethoven broke the mould of the Classical symphony, unleashing a symphonic energy regarded as a turning point in musical history. Welcome to Symphony No 3 ‘Eroica’. It was twice as long as anything that had come before it, and remains a timeless favourite for its emphatic expression of triumph.
Principal Guest Conductor Emmanuel Krivine opens our Beethoven Symphony Cycle with the First Symphony in which Mozart and Haydn’s influence on him are on full display.
SCO Platform, 6.45pm: Performance by students from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
