Played with unflinching precision. THE GUARDIAN
Classical Inventors: Haydn & Beethoven.
Christian Kluxen conductor
Brahms (arr. Weismann) Liebeslieder-Walzer Op 52 (excerpts)
Haydn Trumpet Concerto
Bach Concerto in D Major BWV 972
Beethoven Symphony No.3, Eroica
This concert features some of classical music's greatest inventors.
Haydn wrote his trumpet concerto for the newly-created keyed trumpet which allowed him a previously unheard of melodic freedom. Likewise, Beethoven's Eroica Symphony does away with 18th-century sensibilities and instead brims with startlingly raw emotional content, huge, sudden dynamic changes, and demands fizzing virtuosity of its players at every turn.
Unfortunately, following advice from her doctor, the previously advertised soloist Tine Thing Helseth has had to take the difficult decision to withdraw from this concert.
We are, however, delighted that the Philharmonia Orchestra’s Joint Principal Trumpets, Jason Evans and Alistair Mackie, have kindly agreed to step in for this performance. Jason will now be the soloist for Haydn’s Trumpet Concerto and Alistair the soloist for Bach’s arrangement of Vivaldi’s Concerto in D Major.
