Beethoven Symphony No. 7 in A major

With a heritage as rich as a Sachertorte, tonight’s concert gorges on the finest musical ingredients of Austria’s capital. Beethoven’s symphonies are cornerstones of the orchestral world – our very own sponge cake base! The Seventh Symphony is a feast of rhythm and dance, although Beethoven came from Spanish stock and maybe this just got the better of him when he cooked it up – expect more barnstorming than boleros. A hundred years on, the music of Berg stirred from the melting pot of 1900s Vienna. His Violin Concerto is, by turn, angelic and angst-ridden, one of the most innovative pieces ever written for the instrument. ‘Waltz King’ Johann Strauss II provides the icing on the cake with his Emperor Waltz, with a bonus trip down the river Danube, our dance through Vienna is complete.
