Program

Behind every great piece is a great story. Have a read through the program book to get all the details.

Czech composer Jan Vaňhal was one of the great Viennese composers of his era and this symphony contains all the drama and spirit that made his style so popular.

His Czech compatriot Carl Stamitz was a contemporary, best known for his joyful Viola Concerto. With Principal Viola Tobias Breider as soloist, audiences will hear this remarkable work in all its radiance.

Full of irrepressible and exhilarating energy, Beethoven’s audacious First Symphony signalled to all Vienna the arrival of a powerful new genius at the dawn of a new century.
