BEETHOVEN | SIBELIUS | NICOLAI
Beethoven’s ingenious “Eroica” symphony and Sibelius’ brilliant, but only, concerto were destined to meet in our hall…along with violinist Caroline Goulding. At 19, she’s already seized the Avery Fisher prize and a Grammy nomination.
Stewart Robertson, Guest Conductor | Caroline Goulding, Violin
They lived centuries apart, but conquered their time. Beethoven’s heroic symphony and Sibelius’ brilliant, but only concerto have such incredible emotional depth, structural rigor and orchestral ingenuity that they were destined to meet in our concert hall. That’s where you’ll also meet two Grammy nominees. Guest-conductor, Stewart Robertson burst onto the scene in his twenties with a big win at the Salzburg music festival. Since then, this celebrated Scotsman has scored conducting coups all over the globe. Caroline Goulding and her Stradivarius have conquered concertos with major orchestras, seized the prestigious Avery Fisher prize and debuted a triumphant first album. Oh, she’s 19. If you want to say you “knew her when,” don’t miss another moment of this violinist’s fast flight to fame.
Beethoven | Symphony No. 3 “Eroica”
Sibelius | Violin Concerto
