‘One of the most perfect symphonies ever written’ is how one critic described Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. Spontaneous, energetic and inventive, it showcases the best of Beethoven’s so-called ‘middle’ period, as he struggled with encroaching deafness.
In the orchestra at the premiere of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony was one Johann Hummel, himself a musician and composer. Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto is, for some people, THE trumpet concerto. Written for the inventor of the new keyed trumpet, Anton Weidinger, it is designed to show off the amazing special abilities of the new instrument. So expect virtuosity and eloquence from tonight’s soloist, the young French star, Lucienne Renaudin Vary.
