Although Beethoven’s 250th birthday celebrations were unexpectedly halted, the WSO’s Beethoven 250 events continue with two works from the great composer beginning with the Egmont Overture: the powerful, telling story of Count Egmont through Beethoven’s exquisite music.
WSO Concertmaster Gwen Hoebig takes centre stage with arguably the most popular of Bach’s surviving violin concertos, followed by the graceful ‘Lyric’ for Strings by African-American composer George Walker. We close the evening with Beethoven’s powerful and beloved Symphony No. 7.
