Ian Hobson, music director, conductor, and piano
Sinfonia da Camera’s 39th season opens with Rossini’s brilliant overture to the last of his 39 operas, William Tell. The program continues with Beethoven’s solemn and regal Piano Concerto No. 3, performed by Maestro Hobson as piano soloist. Although Mozart and the Classical tradition seem still embodied in it, this concerto expresses the mature Beethoven’s individuality. Following intermission, the program concludes with Schubert’s Symphony No. 9—a challenge to the artistic and technical powers of both conductors and orchestral musicians worldwide! Schumann called it the “symphony of heavenly length,” and that name, as well as “The Great,” have become how the symphony is known. Full of Romantic spirit and rhythmic energy, join Sinfonia da Camera in this performance of the “Great” symphony in the Great Hall!
