One of the most stimulating and inspirational English conductors, Andrew Manze brings fresh eyes and ideas to an exciting program of Beethoven, Prokofiev and Schubert.

First up, Beethoven’s Overture to Coriolan – created for a Shakespeare-inspired play by Heinrich von Collin, tells the story of Roman general, Coriolanus, and an attempt to exact revenge on Rome following exile. Whilst the play faded from the public realm, the Overture has endured to become a much loved work.

The ‘absolutely magical’ (The Guardian) Isabelle van Keulen then joins the MSO in a performance of Prokofiev’s classic Violin Concerto No.1. Featuring all the hallmark Prokofiev features including classical, modern, motoric and lyrical sections, this is one of the composer’s most legendary works.

The sense of grandeur and space in Schubert’s Symphony No.9 make this work certainly deserved of its Great subtitle and in the hands of maestro Andrew Manze, it will be absolutely breathtaking.
