Beethoven's epic Third Symphony, the Eroica, is the highlight of a concert that also features works by Brahms and by Maltese composer Isouard.
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 this concert.
