Renaud Capuçon violin
Verdi Nabucco - overture
Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1
Beethoven Symphony No. 3, ‘Eroica’
Two chords slam out, and symphonies will never be the same again. Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ symphony changed the course of musical history. Here in Manchester we did our bit too, when in 2006, the BBC Philharmonic’s series of free Beethoven symphony downloads brought recorded music into the 21st century, making headlines around the world. Conductor Laureate Gianandrea Noseda recaptures the energy of that moment tonight, and joins the masterly French violinist Renaud Capuçon in the world’s favourite violin concerto. And in Verdi’s bicentenary year, his overture to Nabucco –gets the action off to an electrifying start.
