Triple Destiny - Mozart, Beethoven and Sibelius

We complete our homage to the 250th anniversary of the birth of Beethoven with his Triple Concerto for piano, violin and cello with celebrated Trio Anima Mundi.

This is preceded by Mozart’s famous overture to Don Giovanni which he is thought to have written in just one day. Unusually for an overture to an opera, this overture contains no themes from the opera itself but, in reality, it is more like the first movement of a symphony.

The concert will end with Sibelius Symphony No 5. How many composers have had a national holiday proclaimed to celebrate their birthday? The Finnish Government did so for Sibelius’ 50th birthday and commissioned his 5th Symphony which was premiered that day. Two revisions later, we have the version that is normally played today.
