Two landmark symphonies make up this Gamechangers concert, which starts with the music of one of the great musical revolutionaries – Beethoven. His compositions, and particularly his symphonies, echoed his eras prevailing spirit of individualism and freedom. Tonight’s seventh symphony is one of his most daring and explosive, a thrilling musical roller-caster ride. Schubert’s epic Symphony 9 concludes the concert, a piece which bridges the gap between Beethoven and Bruckner. Its ‘Great‘ nickname is derived from its size and proportions rather than being a critical judgment, its continued place in musical history and concert programmes being the best proof of its worth and popularity.
Beethoven Symphony No. 7 in A major
Schubert Symphony No. 9 in C major, Great
Semyon Bychkov conductor
