BRAHMS Liebeslieder-Walzer

Op. 52 (excerpts)

SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No. 1 in E flat

BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3, Eroica

 

Beethoven was just putting the finishing touches to his

Eroica Symphony when his hero, Napoleon, declared himself

‘Emperor’ and so, in Beethoven’s eyes, became ‘just another

tyrant’ – Napoleon’s front page dedication was duly scored

out and ‘Eroica’ put in its place. The symphony itself is

fuelled with drama, with brutal dynamics rammed home,

harmonic dissonances revelled in as never before, and

fizzing virtuosity demanded of the players at every turn.

Dedicated to another kind of hero, Shostakovich’s First

Cello Concerto was written for legendary cellist Mstislav

Rostropovich, who loved the piece so much that he memorised

it in just three days.

 

Chiara Enderle’s début with the Philharmonia is supported

by the Pierre Fournier Award.
