As someone who’s spent years getting inside Beethoven’s mind – even going so far as to learn his language – Chief Conductor Designate Simone Young pushes every button in her masterful interpretation of his work.
In this instance, it’s the dramatic Leonore Overture from Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, and one of his best-loved pieces, Symphony No.7. Motion, melody and a touch of mystery – music wouldn’t be the same without Ludwig.
