TSO: Beethoven & Kats-Chernin & Yu
- Date: Thursday, 10 April 2014, 7:30pm
- Venue: Princess Theatre, Launceston — 57 Brisbane Street, Launceston, TAS
Beethoven’s Fifth hardly needs an introduction. Its opening four notes – da-da-da-dum – are probably the most recognisable in all orchestral music, so deeply are they ingrained in our collective memory. Hear the work that spawned the ringtone and enjoy the live, extended play version of one of the greatest of all symphonies.
Katie Noonan sings the hypnotic vocal part in Elena Kats-Chernin’s entrancing Wild Swans, and Alban Berg’s Piano Sonata is given a fresh and invigorating makeover in Julian Yu’s new orchestration. As with Beethoven’s Fifth, the overture to Die Fledermaus contains music that will be instantly familiar. One great tune follows another in Johann Strauss’s most effervescent overture.
Featured non-Australian music: Strauss, Beethoven, Berg (arr. Yu)
