With two mighty chords, Ludwig van Beethoven launched a musical insurrection. There‘s still nothing in all of music to match the drama of Beethoven‘s revolutionary Eroica symphony, and CBSO associate conductor Michael Seal conducts it with absolute commitment and unstoppable energy. Expect some serious voltage; an explosive contrast to Scriabin‘s deliriously romantic early masterpiece – the greatest concerto Rachmaninov never wrote? – and Rimsky Korsakov‘s all-glittering, all-dancing Capriccio espagnol.
