Music by classical masters on B with the Gothenburg Symphony and Andrew Manze conductor.
We like to count Britta Byström among the classic masters on B. Hear the premiere of Voyages Extraordinaires, based on the adventures of Jules Verne. Conductor Andrew Manze shows us Beethoven’s most romantic side in Symphony No. 7.
Beethoven’s 7th Symphony was already a success at its premiere. It is also extroverted music full of energy and dramatic charge.
When Beethoven wrote the 7th Symphony, Napoleon was besieging Vienna. The second movement has therefore been interpreted as a monument to human suffering and the finale as a victoriously inspired triumph. With its powerful rhythms, it is one of Beethoven’s most muscular symphonies.
We also get to hear a piece by one of Sweden’s most celebrated composers, Britta Byström. To her piece Voyages Extraordinaires, Britta Byström says she borrowed the title from Jules Verne. “The title felt fitting because my work is conceived precisely as fantastic musical journeys, where the listener is suddenly transported to a completely new sound world via a recurring orchestral transformation number.”
Conducted by Andrew Manze, the concert opens with Brahms’s Tragic Overture.
