Performance Notes

× Northumberland Orchestra and Choir 2018-2019 Season Fate! Saturday October 27, 2018 Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 Paganini:Concerto for Violin and Orchestra – Soloist Tak Kwan Cherubini:Requiem in C Minor Our season’s opening concert presents three remarkable works. Cherubini was a composer best known for his operas and a contemporary o Beethoven who thought very highly of the Italian’s musical skills Cherubini’s Requiem in C minor was chosen as the music for Beethoven’s funeral. Paganini was a brilliant performer and a skilled composer who crafted fiendishly difficult music for his own performances. His Concerto No 1 in D major for Violin and Orchestra clearly fits this description and will be performed by NOC Concertmaster Tak Kwan. Did Paganini truly sell his soul to the devil in return for his musical skills? You can be the judge. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5 is among the most recognizable works in symphonic music. The opening melodic idea has long been described as fate knocking at Beethoven’s door. Eventually, it became a symbol of hope and victory following the Second World War, as “V” the sign of victory comes from the Roman numeral V for five.
