Berlioz - Overture: Le carnaval romain
Schumann - Cello Concerto
Beethoven - Symphony No.3, ‘Eroica’
Nicholas Trygstad, cello
There’s more Italian ambience in this concert with Berlioz’s overture, Roman Carnival, incorporating themes from his opera Benvenuto Cellini. It is conducted by Kristiina Poska, with the Hallé for the first time. In Schumann’s romantically lyrical Cello Concerto, she is joined by Nicholas Trygstad, the Hallé’s Principal Cellist. Then, Beethoven’s revolutionary Third Symphony, its original dedication to Napoleon angrily withdrawn after his hero declared himself Emperor. Its subsequent title, ‘Eroica’, nevertheless reflects the character of a work that in its daring and ambition changed the course of music history.
