Romantic shimmer with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, conductor Kent Nagano and cellist Truls Mørk.
This concert is enveloped in a romantic shimmer. Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 begins with a solo for the horn – the instrument that captures the very essence of the Romantic era. Here it provides the tone for the rural nature of the areas around Vienna where Schubert derived his energy and inspiration. Sadly the composer never actually got to hear his symphony played for an audience. When Robert Schumann discovered the work and brought it to light, Schubert had already been dead for ten years.
In the Concert Hall this evening, this work is conducted by Kent Nagano, formerly the principal guest conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.
The programme also features Victoria Borisova-Ollas’ Oh Giselle, remember me… for cello and orchestra, dedicated to this evening’s soloist Truls Mørk. The work draws its inspiration from the romantic ballet about the young peasant girl Giselle, who falls in love but dies of a broken heart.
