- Berlioz Overture ‘Rob Roy’, 13′
- Ravel Tzigane, 10′
- Beethoven Symphony No.7, 38′
Rob Roy was an outlaw – and when Hector Berlioz tells his tale in music, you can feel every ounce of drama, adrenalin and (of course) romance. It’s a stirring way to begin a real swashbuckler of a concert: because music doesn’t get wilder or more life-affirming than Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. Contemporaries thought Beethoven had gone mad. Today, this white-knuckle ride of a symphony has never been more popular – and believe us, when Michael Seal conducts it, he never holds back! First though, the CBSO’s brilliant new leader Eugene Tzikindelean sends the passion off the scale in Ravel’s fiery Tzigane. Hold onto your seats…
