Overview

Sir Simon Rattle conducts the VFCO in a Beethoven double-bill featuring two of his younger conductor colleagues, Klaus Mäkëla and Lahav Shani, as the cello and piano soloists in the Triple Concerto, with violinist Leonidas Kavakos; followed by the ‘Eroica’ Symphony No. 3.

Completed in 1804, Beethoven’s Triple Concerto is the only one in the repertoire whose ‘soloist’ is a piano trio – a chamber genre which at the time was hugely popular, meaning Beethoven was being both highly fashionable and entirely unique. It opens strikingly, on a tiptoe, with an ascending figure from which much of the movement’s ensuing march-like material will be drawn. A brief but expressive central Largo makes much of the cello’s upper registers, before tipping seamlessly into a flashy-yet-elegant finale built around a triple-time Polonaise dance and featuring the work’s only solo cadenza. Originally conceived in honour of Napoleon, Beethoven’s ‘Heroic’ Symphony No. 3 was of an unprecedented length for its 1803 time, and his first without a slow introduction. It opens instead on two choral explosions, then a forwards-pushing theme (with a ‘surprise’ final twist) which will appear throughout the work in various guises. Next come an extended funeral march, and a merrily bucolic Scherzo with a central trio of hunting horns. The finale opens on a shout, proceeds with a whisper – plucked strings with the bass-line of the theme Beethoven then turns into a set of variations – before dancing to a triumphant finish.

Venue Info

Salle des Combins - Verbier
Location   Chemin de Plan Pra

Salle des Combins is the Verbier Festival’s main concert hall. It normally seats 1,419. Each row is on a separate tier, which guarantees an excellent view of the stage. Improvements to the soundproofing and heat insulation make this a very high-quality non-permanent venue. All of the Festival’s symphonic concerts, operas, large world music, jazz, dance events and some recitals are presented here.
