What's On

Gardiner's Schumann: Symphony No 3 - London Symphony Orchestra / Sir John Eliot Gardiner

Sir John Eliot Gardiner leads a journey through the Romanticism of Weber, Mendelssohn and Schumann.

The Overture to Weber’s grand opera Euryanthe, which has taken on a life of its own in the concert hall, is a window onto some of the most exciting moments of the whole work. Isabelle Faust and Kristian Bezuidenhout then present Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Violin and Piano, which elegantly balances a measure of Classical restraint against rich and Romantic displays of feeling.

We close with Schumann’s Third Symphony. One of the composer’s most impressive, it paints a euphoric picture of the German Rhineland in broad Beethovenian style, closing with an exhilarating finale.
