“Tender, and sensitive, and intimate… I'm just so unbelievably moved by his music”, is how Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti describes Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, the centrepiece of this brilliant all-Beethoven programme.

Thomas Edison once said, “genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”. This certainly applies to tonight’s Overture. Leonore No 1 was one of Beethoven’s four attempts at writing an overture to Fidelio. The Fourth is the most Classical of Beethoven's mature symphonies - in form if not in content. But, within the ‘Classical’ frame lurks something wonderfully subversive and original.
