Immortal Beethoven: The Early Symphonies
JOSEPH SWENSEN, conductor
HARROLD New Work World Premiere
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 1
MACMILLAN Í: A Meditation on Iona
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 2
This is a very Swensen concert, sure to have those hallmark qualities that inspire critical reactions such as “thrilling and ecstatic” and “some of the keenest and most explosive performances from the SCO”. To have him direct the first two Beethoven symphonies is a rare treat. Great music, of course, but also a fascinating snapshot of Beethoven’s evolution in his early 30s. Twenty years after conducting the premiere, Swensen returns to James MacMillan’s atmospheric Í : a musical evocation of Iona, a place of wild seas, stark beauty and spirituality. Opening the evening is a new voice for SCO audiences as award-winning Tom Harrold writes his first piece for the Orchestra.
Kindly supported by Donald and Louise MacDonald.
