Gábor Takács-Nagy conducts energetic symphonies by Beethoven, Mozart and Haydn.
Meet a symphonist on the cusp of revolution: energy and ideas fizz in Beethoven’s Second, music written as an antidote to the darkness encroaching upon his thoughts. Haydn conjures images of the Parisian Court in his Symphony No.90, the same city Mozart had just returned from when writing the short, overture-like Symphony No.32.
Gábor Takács-Nagy is a prize-winning interpreter of his compatriot Bartók’s music, combining an encyclopaedic understanding with infectious enthusiasm. Here the conductor shares his passion with Southbank Sinfonia, ‘a hugely talented young ensemble whose performances are always theatrical’ (The Independent).
