Violins whirl, drums pound, and as Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony (as heard in the film The King’s Speech) hurtles towards its finish, the horns of the orchestra practically jump with joy. Beethoven’s Seventh was a smash hit in 1813, and it can still bring the house down today – especially with a conductor as dynamic as Carlos Kalmar. It’s a tough act to follow, so instead he’s beginning with some real romantic gems: Brahms’s playful homage to his own favourite composer, a piece that Schubert never quite finished, and Liverpool-born mezzo Jennifer Johnston in Wagner’s Wesendonck Songs – the intimate confessions of a genius in love.
