2002: Three Adventures

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

Bold works from 1802, 1902 and 2002, by Beethoven, Sibelius and Oliver Knussen, continue the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision project.

Every Beethoven symphony is a journey, and in 1802 the energy and daring of his Second Symphony strained at the outer boundaries of musical possibility.

A hundred years later, Jean Sibelius followed Beethoven’s example and created one of the 20th century’s true symphonic epics: a struggle from tranquillity to triumph, rooted in nature and crowned with a melody you’ll never forget.

Guest conductor Vasily Petrenko also brings his unrivalled sense of colour and momentum to Daniel Pioro’s performance of Oliver Knussen’s 2002 Violin Concerto, described by its (much-missed) composer as ‘a tightrope walker progressing along a (decidedly unstable) high wire’.
