Et toca a tu

Gautier Capuçon has been filling concert halls for years with his cello performances. This time he is visiting us to offer us the virtuosity and sensitivity of Schumann’s cello concerto. Beforehand, we will be hearing Brahms’ wonderful Third symphony, his most popular, followed by Sibelius’ Seventh. The programme begins with the score commissioned by the OBC for the social integration programme “Et Toca a Tu”.

Program

Brahms had difficulty composing his first symphony but when he had completed it, at the age of 43, he went on to write four of the indispensable works in the German Romantic repertoire. The Third is the most popular with an adagio of exceptional lyricism, one of the composer’s most recognisable tunes. When Sibelius had finished his Seventh Symphony, he tried to write an Eighth but finally decided to abandon it: the Seventh was to be his symphonic legacy, a work produced when he was at the peak of his career. Although he lived for another 30 years, he hardly composed at all, aware that he was unable to achieve greater levels of beauty and sensitivity.
