After the world premiere of a work selected specially from our 2019 Composers’ Workshop, we hear one of Beethoven’s most fresh-faced symphonies and a score that is a joy from start to end – his eighth. Beethoven is in a similarly optimistic mood in his Romances, which betray none of the tragedy of the composer’s life at the time. These lyrical songs for violin and orchestra – played by our own Associate Concertmasters Charlotte Scott and Shlomy Dobrinsky – radiate delicacy and warmth. Pulses will race, however, with Beethoven’s orchestral journey from unjust incarceration to blazing liberty – his Leonore Overture No. 3.
