Lindberg’s Second Violin Concerto ( World premiere) at the Royal Festival Hall – 9th December 2015



The evening begins with Johan Wagenaar’s Overture, Cyrano d Bergerac, one of the Dutch composer’s most popular works.

Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony was composed between 1811 and 1812, its remained one of the composer’s favourite works. The second movement, Allegretto has proved one of most popular movements and is frequently performed on its own.

Beethoven’s most unusual, fascinating and bold symphony is preceded here by the world premiere of the Second Violin Concerto by Magnus Lindberg, just a month after the Orchestra’s performance of his first concerto for the instrument (11 November). Jaap van Zweden takes to the podium for this concert of bold orchestral statements.

Commissioned by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Berliner Philharmoniker and Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
