Beethoven

Beethoven’s 4th symphony in B flat major was composed in 1806 and premiered in 1807. It has in many cases been overshadowed by the greatness of symphony nr. 3 “Eroica” and symphony nr. 5, but it is still a masterpiece written by a great composer.

The symphony has four movements. The beginning of the first movement is quiet, and it has similarities to “The Creation” by Haydn. This leads us into a more melodic and rhythmic Allegro vivace. The second movement is a quiet adagio, the third a Scherzo and the final movement is a finale which also has similarities to Haydn.

Ligeti

At this concert the orchestra will also be preforming Ligetis Concerto Romanesc, a concerto for orchestra which is inspired by Bartok and Enescu. Two composers who used the orchestra in a new and different way.

The work was composed in 1951 and it has elements from folk music, medieval music and classical music.
