Event Details

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

Mendelssohn Midsummer Night’s Dream: Overture, Nocturne and Scherzo
Schubert Overture ‘In the Italian style’
Beethoven Symphony No.2

Mendelssohn was just 18 when he wrote his famous overture. He travelled 80 miles through the snow to hear his first big public success but it was 16 years before he wrote the rest of the music for Shakespeare’s iconic play. After two years of sketching which coincided with his realisation that his hearing was becoming a problem, Beethoven produced his Second Symphony, one of the last works he was able to hear performed. Schubert’s spirited and colourful Overture completes the programme.

The concert will be available to watch from 7pm on Tuesday 20 April, preceded by a live preconcert talk on Zoom at 7pm with BBC Radio 3 broadcaster and author Stephen Johnson, and a post-concert Zoom q and a session with musicians, conductors and staff in a sort of ‘post-match analysis’, where you can ask questions and participate. Further information on how to join the Zoom will be sent to you after you purchase a ticket.
