Beethoven Symphony No. 4
Beethoven Violin Concerto

Marin Alsop conductor
Nicola Benedetti violin

Nicola Benedetti’s first appearance with us.

A musician always confounding expectations, violinist Nicola Benedetti performs with us for the first time in this concert.

She’s joined by conductor Marin Alsop for a programme of Beethoven performed with pure unvarnished musicality.

Sandwiched between the complex Third Symphony and the iconic Fifth, Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is a gentler, more intimate affair that harks back to older music and shows the distinct influence of Haydn.

Written in the same year as the Fourth Symphony, Beethoven’s only Violin Concerto was one of the first pieces written for the instrument on a large scale.

Enjoy this exploration of the variety of Beethoven’s music with two artists of international distinction.

  • Why is there a picture of Simone Jandl?

  • Hi Suq,
    An interesting question. Because we’re a player-run orchestra, we believe that our players themselves should feature heavily in the marketing materials. While we love our guest soloists, our players themselves are also stars of the show!

  • OK – thanks! I figured it would be a picture of the soloist, but it didn’t look like Ms Benedetti. I thought you would correct it and not bother with my post, so I used a fake name… You may want to remove my post or change it to “Anonymous”. The name is one I saw on the Colbert Report. Sorry – it’s rather puerile, but the clip does make me laugh. Cheers.
