Celebrating Beethoven - ONLINE EVENT

Part of the Classical Club - Autumn 2020 Series

Add to my Calendar 15-11-2020 19:00 15-11-2020 21:00 36 Celebrating Beethoven - ONLINE EVENT The musical celebrations to mark Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year were put on hold with the arrival of Covid-19, but Classical Club members will be able to enjoy a late salute in November, when LMP performs Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture and his stunning Violin Concerto. The Overture was inspired by Heinrich von Collin’s play Coriolan, rather than Shakespeare’s tragedy, and the music expresses the moods in the story – Coriolan’s rebellious nature, and his mother’s pleading for mercy. Beethoven’s Violin Concerto is one of his most serene works, reflecting the composer’s relative personal happiness at the time. The revolutionary concerto takes us on a journey that’s different from any violin concerto that preceded it: from a lyrical first movement, to a larghetto second movement and finally, a joyous rambunctious finale. It’s a hugely satisfying masterpiece which our socially-distanced audience at St John’s Smith Square will love.  We are delighted to introduce rising star and YCAT artist Jonian Ilias Kadesha as soloist for our final Classical Club concert of the series. Enjoy the whole 8-concert series online via LMP’s Classical Club, tickets just £12 each or £50 for the full series if you book before 31 October (£60 thereafter). St John's Smith Square, London DD/MM/YYYY
