Beethoven Unwrapped with conductor Robin Browning
In our final concert of the season, de Havilland Philharmonic Orchestra is delighted to offer you a new venture – Beethoven Unwrapped!
- Ludwig van Beethoven – The Coriolan (Overture)
- Ludwig van Beethoven – Symphony No.6
The first half of the concert opens with Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture, composed in 1807 for a play by Heinrich Joseph von Collin, telling the tragic story of a 5th century Roman general in Beethoven’s typically dramatic musical style.
The Orchestra's conductor Robin Browning will then explore Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, number 6 in F, going ‘behind the scenes’ of this very programmatic music, by unwrapping it with musical excerpts.
Finally, the Orchestra gives a complete performance of the work in the second half of the concert, and we hope that you enjoy the final closing piece of the season with new insights and enjoyment!
