Beethoven’s Fifth

Federation Concert Hall, nipaluna / Hobart

Anna Clyne Restless Oceans
Mahler Rückert Lieder
Mahler Rheinlegendchen and Lob des Hohen Verstandes from Des Knaben Wunderhorn
Beethoven Symphony No 5 in C minor, Op 67

Conducted by Eivind Aadland, featuring soprano Camilla Tilling.

Beethoven’s Fifth is more than a piece of music – it’s a cultural phenomenon. And while its dramatic opening is the most recognisable hook in all orchestral music, the symphony has plenty to offer beyond its first four notes. It’s an electrifying orchestral experience that will immerse you, culminating in the most radiant of victories.

The high drama of the Fifth is prefaced by one of the most gorgeous collections of songs in the repertoire – Gustav Mahler’s Rückert Lieder, performed by illustrious Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling, making her Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra debut.

And before that take a dip in Restless Oceans by contemporary English composer Anna Clyne, which was inspired by Audre Lorde’s poem A Woman Speaks. In the words of the composer, ‘My intention was to write a defiant piece that embraces the power of women.’
