    The “impossible to play” work —according to what they said at the time— which continues to be one of the biggest challenges for violinists today, and the symphony that confirmed Beethoven as Europe’s best composer. Two magisterial works to open the season with Kazushi Ono and the Stradivarius of Lithuanian virtuoso Julian Rachlin.

    Program

    Tchaikovsky, who always avoided “musical nationalism”, demonstrated that it was possible to perform a concert for Russian violin whilst continuing to be Europeist: it was inspired by Lalo’s Spanish Symphony, which was composed in Switzerland and premiered in Vienna. Since then it has formed part of the round of Romantic violin concertos, together with those of Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Brahms. The Heroic Symphony saved Beethoven’s life: overwhelmed by the deafness that afflicted him, he threw himself into the composition of this great work —the longest symphony that anybody had written up to that time— and was reborn as a new man with one of the most important works in the history of music.
    Egmont will open the programme, a piece written to accompany Goethe’s play of the same name. The work deals with themes such as the fight against tyranny, freedom, and the greatness of the hero, who dies without having given in to his enemies.
