Tragedy and Triumph

Event Details

After six months of absence, the London Philharmonic Orchestra returns to the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall on 30 September to launch ‘In the Stream of Life’, a full Autumn season of 13 concerts streamed globally on Marquee TV – free for the first seven days

JÖRG WIDMANN Con brio
SIBELIUS (ORCH. RAUTAVAARA) In the Stream of Life
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 5

Edward Gardner conductor (Chair supported by Mrs Christina Lang Assael)
Gerald Finley bass-baritone

Four notes that changed the world. That unforgettable opening thunderclap is just the start of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony: a musical drama of Fate versus genius and triumph out of tragedy, told in music of such uncompromising honesty that even today it can still shock – and inspire – like few other masterpieces. It’s an explosive return to the concert hall for the LPO, under Principal Conductor Designate Edward Gardner. And because Beethoven thrives on the unexpected, we’re setting the scene with two captivating discoveries: Jörg Widmann’s supercharged homage to Beethoven, and a welcome return from the great Gerald Finley in a windswept song-cycle by Sibelius.
