the music

Haydn's Trumpet Concerto, intended to promote a new key trumpet invented by trumpeter Anton Weidinger, had been missing for 129 years before becoming one of his most popular works after publication in 1931. At the heart of this Viennese program are the Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, based on Mahler's own poems describing the amorous woes of a companion betrayed by his lady, condemning him to a life of roaming. Optimism prevails this evening, however, thanks to the irresistible energy in Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, which inspired Wagner to comment on its culmination of dance rhythms.

Discover an excerpt of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande playing Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A major conducted by Kazuki Yamada on January 7, 2015 at Victoria Hall and recorded by Espace 2.
