EXTERNAL EVENTS / Scottish Chamber Orchestra: Nicola Benedetti plays Beethoven

Usher Hall, Edinburgh


Beethoven:
Leonore Overture No 1
Symphony No 4
Violin Concerto

Joseph Swensen: conductor; Nicola Benedetti: violin

“Tender, and sensitive, and intimate… I’m just so unbelievably moved by his music”, is how Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti describes Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, the centrepiece of this brilliant all Beethoven programme.

Thomas Edison once said, “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”. This certainly applies to tonight’s Overture. Leonore No 1 was one of Beethoven’s four attempts at writing an overture to Fidelio. The Fourth is the most Classical of Beethoven’s mature symphonies – in form if not in content. But, within the ‘Classical’ frame lurks something wonderfully subversive and original.
