The Doctors’ Orchestra

A fundraising concert in aid of Freedom from Torture

Repertoire

Schubert
Symphony No. 9 (Great)
Berlioz
Symphonie fantastique

Performers

Stephen Brearley
conductor

In its sixth concert in support of Freedom from Torture The Doctors’ Orchestra presents two monumental symphonies written only four years apart by composers aged just 29 and 27, yet as different in style and technique as they could possibly be.

Schubert’s Great C-major overtly pays tribute to Beethoven, whom he revered, while lacking nothing of its composer’s gift for melody. Berlioz, though no less in awe of Beethoven, produced in his Symphonie fantastique a mould-breaking work whose brilliant orchestration and stunning effects profoundly influenced generations of composers who followed him.

Compare and contrast… and enjoy!
