Performers

Christopher Warren-Green
conductor

The final concert of the season features a world premiere in which LCO is joined by participants from Music Junction, the orchestra’s groundbreaking community and outreach programme.

Beethoven’s Overture was written for a play by Goethe commemorating the heroic deeds of Count Egmont in his struggle against tyranny; and it’s easy to hear how Haydn’s Military Symphony got its nickname, its second movement evoking, according to one reviewer, ‘the hellish roar of war’.

We begin with a real rarity – an overture by Beethoven’s contemporary, Charles-Simon Catel, a popular figure in his time and the go-to composer when rousing military music was needed for state ceremonies.

Concert supported by MariaMarina Foundation.
