Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’

Saturday 27 Apr 2024 7:30pm
Federation Concert Hall, nipaluna / Hobart

Harry Sdraulig Flashout
Korngold Violin Concerto in D, Op 35
Beethoven Symphony No 3 in E-flat, Op 55, ‘Eroica’

Conducted by Johannes Fritzsch, featuring Emily Sun on violin.

Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’ Symphony is one of those works that never loses its ability to shock, stir and astound. It is a classic in every respect and remains as thrilling today as it was centuries ago. Legendary conductor Leonard Bernstein described its first half as ‘perhaps the two greatest movements in all orchestral music’.

At the head of the concert is the world premiere of a new work by immensely gifted Australian composer Harry Sdraulig – Flashout, which is followed by Korngold’s Violin Concerto performed by the extraordinary Emily Sun. Like Beethoven, Erich Wolfgang Korngold was a child prodigy. After bidding farewell to Vienna he forged an impressive career in Hollywood as an Oscar-winning film composer, his work here weaving together themes and motifs from some of his best-loved movie scores.
