Ludwig van Beethoven: Leonore Overture No. 1, op. 138
Joseph Haydn: Cello concerto in C major, Hob. VIIb:1
Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 in F major, op. 68 “Pastoral”
Maestro Hofstetter isn’t the only expert on the sweet landscapes depicted in the compositions of the First Viennese School when he conducts Beethoven’s Sixth. The English cellist Natalie Clein is a master of the “Pastoral” as well, with its soft, beautiful sounds, delicate nuances and light phrasing. No wonder – after all she’s from Poole on the South Coast of England. The beautiful countryside of Dorset County resounds from her master cello, even though it was built in Italy.
Pre-concert talk in the Stefaniensaal at 7.15 pm.
