Beethoven Overture no. 3 op. 72b Leonore
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor op. 64
Brahms Symphony no. 2 in D op. 73
Music at Oxford welcomes back the world-class Philharmonia Orchestra with three pillars of the German repertoire. Beethoven struggled to compose the overture to his opera Fidelio, writing four versions, of which no. 3 is considered the greatest. Intense, dramatic and taut - it's a full symphonic mvement. Arabella Steinbacher will bring her 'refined, instinctive playing' (The Telegraph) to Mendelssohn's evergreen, much loved violin concerto. Brahms's Symphony no. 2, which he wrote swiftly over the summer of 1877 while staying in Carinthia, will give a rousing, uplifting finale to the evening.
