Nicola Benedetti plays Beethoven's Violin Concerto

  • City Halls

  • BEETHOVEN - Composer

    JOSEPH SWENSEN - Conductor


    BEETHOVEN Leonore Overture No 1 (10’)

    BEETHOVEN Violin Concerto (34’)

    BEETHOVEN Symphony No 4 (42’)

    “Tender, and sensitive, and intimate… I'm just so unbelievably moved by his music”, is how Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti describes Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, the centrepiece of this brilliant all-Beethoven programme.

    Thomas Edison once said, “genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”. This certainly applies to tonight’s Overture. Leonore No 1 was one of Beethoven’s four attempts at writing an overture to Fidelio. The Fourth is the most Classical of Beethoven's mature symphonies - in form if not in content. But, within the ‘Classical’ frame lurks something wonderfully subversive and original.

      Got the ticket, high up on the balcony, at the very rear. I do expect you can still hear something there!

    Not surprised Anna. Nicola Benedetti extremely popular. However very many other extraordinary violinists are doing concerts. Look at RSNO and SCO websites. The violinist Janine Jansson other night was stunning..its not just Nicola...

    W7 in the stalls. (it's far back, and maybe not the best place to sit to hear individual instruments, but I quite like to see the whole of the stage. It's easy to get in and out too as it's near the door!)
