The CBSO and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla explore the theme of political and artistic freedom.
Beethoven’s Leonore overture No. 3, written for his rescue opera Fidelio, celebrates the triumph of truth over tyranny in music of radiant beauty, while his Fifth Symphony rewrites the rules for the Classical symphony.
In his new work, maverick composer Gerald Barry is inspired by revolutionary events in Canada’s history, also setting the text from Fidelio’s Prisoners’ Chorus; and violinist Leila Josefowicz amps up the drama in the fierce brilliance of Stravinsky’s neo-Classical concerto.
