2011: Storming the heavens

Streamed concert

JULIAN ANDERSON Van Gogh Blue*
NIELSEN Violin Concerto
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7

John Storgårds conductor
Simone Lamsma violin

In 1811, Beethoven conceived a symphony without precedent. ‘He’s ripe for the madhouse’ declared one contemporary, but 250 years on from the composer’s death, the Seventh Symphony burns with undimmed popularity and power. As part of our 2020 Vision, John Storgårds has followed the Symphony’s influence down two centuries, and paired it with two works of maverick genius. Simone Lamsma plays Nielsen’s Violin Concerto of 1911 – a bracing counterblast to romantic clichés, composed under clear northern skies. And Julian Anderson plunges into the luminous, swirling imagination of Vincent van Gogh, creating sounds that transcend social distance, glowing with fantasy and colour.
