Eastbourne residency: Mozart, Prokofiev and Beethoven

Ideals of liberty in Beethoven's Symphony No. 3

3:00 PM, ​ Congress Theatre, Eastbourne

Mozart Overture, The Marriage of Figaro
Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. 2
Beethoven Symphony No. 3 'Eroica'

Gad Kadosh conductor
Kristīne Balanas violin

In April 1805, Ludwig van Beethoven organised a charity concert that he hoped would help lift the burden of the opporessed. For this pivotal occasion, he wrote a symphony that would encapsulate ideals of liberty in music of intense endurance and fortitude. In its volume, length and emotional power, Beethoven's Eroica left critics and audiences dumbfounded. You can still hear why.

Sergei Prokofiev combined powerful elements in the neat symmetry of his Second Violin Concerto, too – a piece whose ordered poise is spiked with heady beauty and colourful fantasy, where long-breathed melodies mingle with moments of haunting stillness and thought.
