You can watch the full concert live in this article on June 1 at 18h CET.
Beethoven, Haydn, Schor and Schubert
The concert is set to kick off with the Overture to Beethoven’s Egmont, Op. 84, music written for the 1787 play of the same name by the renowned author, poet, scientist and statesman, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Composed between 1809 and 1810, the work is known for its drama, expressiveness and power.
Next, the orchestra will play Joseph Haydn’s Symphony No. 104 in D major, the composer’s final symphony and the last of his so-called ‘London Symphonies’. The piece was premiered in 1795 to considerable success.
Following a short intermission, the orchestra welcomes to the stage the Principal Clarinet of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Boris Allakhverdyan, for a performance of Alexey Shor’s Clarinet Concerto, a predominantly lively affair first premiered in 2020 with a lyrical and expressive middle “Andante” movement which is balanced by two energetic bookends.
The concert will conclude with Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 7 in E major, D. 729, a work notable as remaining unfinished at the time of the composer’s death in 1828.
