Cheltenham Concert Series: Santtu-Matias Rouvali, Alison Balsom, Philharmonia Orchestra

Symphony No.2 in D, Op.36
Trumpet Concerto in E flat
Symphony in C

Johann Nepomuk Hummel was Haydn's successor at the Esterhazy Court, and his Trumpet Concerto was first played on New Year's Day 1804 to mark his first day in the post. Tonight's solost needs no introduction; Alison Balsom is feted wherever she goes.

"Brillant: that's the word for the Classical brit Award's Female Artist of 2009." - The Times

Beethoven's Second Symphony was composed during a period of considerable emotional turmoil; even so it contains numerous musical jokes and surprises. Bizet began his symphony just after his 17th birthday; it is now regarded as a youthful masterpiece on a par with Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream Overture.

The career of tonight's conductor, Santtu-Matias Rouvali, is developing at a remarkable pace. Following his debut with the Orchestra in January 2012, the exciting young Finn will take up the post of Principal Guest Conductor of the Copenhagen Philharmonic in September 2013.

"Superlative playing by the Philharmonia, currently in a league of its own." - Classical Source
