Meet the visiting Oslo Philharmonic and acclaimed conductor Klaus Mäkelä, together with brilliant soloist Isabelle Faust, in Louise Farrenc’s melodically tasteful Overture No. 2, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 and Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, his last such completed work. The concert begins in baroque style with Jean-Baptiste Lully’s Marche pour la Cérémonie des Turcs.

Louise Farrenc was a prominent member of the 19th century French music scene and was not only a composer but also a brilliant concert pianist. For thirty years she held the position of professor at the renowned Paris Conservatory. She was a huge admirer of Beethoven, which can be discerned in her two overtures. This evening we are also treated to Beethoven’s melodically light-hearted yet rhythmically intense Symphony No. 7, as well as Farrenc’s Overture No. 2, featuring music filled with melodic imagination, drama and harmonic nerve.
