Programme Note

The Dresden Philharmonic and its conductor Michael Sanderling join us for a series of three concerts exploring the music of Beethoven with pianist Freddy Kempf.

Their second concert opens with Beethoven’s Egmont Overture, an exhilarating narrative of heroism, harmoniously succeeded by the intimate and angelic Piano Concerto No. 4.

After the interval, Symphony No. 6 (Pastoral) evokes images of strolling in the countryside through its buoyant melody and birdcalls depicted by woodwind instruments. The work is one of the first real examples of what became known as ‘programme music’: music that tells a specific story.

The Dresden Philharmonic performs further Beethoven concerts on Thursday 18 June and Monday 22 June.

Part of the Zurich International Orchestra Series 2014-15
