Beethoven : Eroica

DATE: 16/03/2017
TIME: 3:30 PM till 6:00 PM


Joconde Overture

Double Concerto

Symphony No. 3 “Eroica”

Beethoven and Brahms feature side by side under the baton of Principal Conductor Brian Schembri, with renowned soloists Jiman Wee and Kirill Rodin joining the orchestra to perform Brahms’ Double Concerto.

Originally written for Napoleon Bonaparte, Beethoven’s Third Symphony was dramatically renamed “Sinfonia Eroica” or “Heroic Symphony” after the composer saw a different side to Napoleon than the one he had admired him for.

In contrast, Isouard was a loyal Bonapartist, and the overture to his opera “Joconde”, edited by Richard Divall, will open these concerts.
