Beethoven: Symphony No.7
We are delighted to welcome the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and its Music Director Steven Mercurio to Hull City Hall. The programme opens with ‘Vltava’ from Smetana’s Má Vlast – an evocative orchestral picture of the river that flows through Prague, filled with ebbing and flowing woodwind and strings.
Dvořák’s music also paints a picture of his Czech home. His ‘Slavonic Dances’ and ‘Violin Concerto’ are filled with joyful interpretations of traditional folk tunes.
Beethoven’s ‘Symphony No.7’ resounds with a wonderful blend of gravitas and rising melodies, with the fourth and final movement launching into a frantic fanfare that makes for a spectacular showpiece to end the concert.
