LSO_AbuDhabi

Opening the new Abu Dhabi Classics 2017-2018 Season with a Gala Concert in Al Jahili Fort (Al Ain), the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra will play one of Beethoven’s most popular Symphonies: the 4th Symphony, written in 1806. For one of the fathers of the Romanic movement in music, German composer Robert Schumann, this Symphony was also, the “most romantic” of Beethoven’s Symphonic works. Completing the evening in Al Jahili Fort will also be the Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto composed in 1868, a work widely influenced by the same Robert Schumann and its interest in folk music. Also on the programme for the evening, the Siegfied-Idyll, the Symphonic Poem Richard Wagner offered his wife Cosima for the birth of their son Siegfried in 1869.
