Bartók’s effervescent Divertimento, written shortly before his departure to the USA, opens the final concert of the 14/15 season, creating the perfect foil for Mozart’s much-lauded masterpiece, Sinfonia Concertante. The climax comes in the second half featuring Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony – a work full of rhythmic vitality that was described by Richard Wagner as ‘the apotheosis of the dance’. Its glorious slow movement featured in the Oscar-winning The King’s Speech.

  • Beethoven - Symphony No. 7
