Beethoven: Eroica

Ivor Bolton & Daniel Hope

  • Sat04November18:00 H

English late Romanticist Edward Elgar is his fellow countryman and naturally has special significance for star violinist Daniel Hope, who won the admiration of Yehudi Menuhin. In Germany, Elgar has been known above all for his royal marches, along the lines of “Hope and Glory.” But he also left us symphonies that are among the most important of their genre. His Violin Concerto, too, is a phenomenal work, perhaps the last Romantic violin concerto of them all. The work is full of magical moments – near the end of the concerto, the composer conjures forth an Aeolian harp from the orchestra, evoking memories from the course of a life.

Elgar’s music was particularly influenced by Brahms and Beethoven. The Sinfonieorchester Basel will be offering the latter composer’s Third Symphony, “Eroica.” The work was originally dedicated to Napoleon – with its funeral march and unusual finale, this highly original symphony is among Beethoven’s most important compositions.
