Sarah Viejou, horn & your Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra

How did you spend your time at age 18? Strauss wrote his first horn concerto at that age while a student at Munich University. Inspired by his father, a leading horn player of the day, this three-movement work explores the great potential of the horn as a solo instrument. Sarah Viejou, LSO principal horn player, will share with us this most frequently performed horn concerto from the 19th century.

Beethoven’s Symphony #7, a cheerful energetic work, shows the composer’s musical optimism despite having become deaf. This symphony boasts brilliant instrumental colours and rich melodies. One listener early on was convinced this music could only have been written by “someone who was seriously intoxicated” while others praised it as being “most pleasing and comprehensible”. Come listen and choose for yourself.
