Repertoire Flamma, by Erkki-Sven Tüür
Kristiina Poska, Conductor
SHOSTAKOVICH Chamber Symphony Op 110a
BEETHOVEN Symphony No 2
From the turmoil of conflict and defiance against oppression – to the blazing flames of joy.
Join award-winning Estonian conductor Kristiina Poska and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra for a concert of high drama and deep emotion.
Poska’s compatriot Erkki-Sven Tüür burns away the turmoil with the purifying fire of his dazzling Flamma. The concert ends with Beethoven’s sunniest, most freewheeling Symphony – written in tribute to the power of optimism in the face of his encroaching deafness.
It wasn’t Shakespeare’s Coriolanus that inspired Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture, though the music tells the same story – of one man’s struggles between conflict and love – in some of the composer’s fieriest music. Shostakovich, by contrast, wrote his Eighth String Quartet – which he later enlarged into his Chamber Symphony – at a time of great oppression from the Soviet state. It’s impossible not to feel profoundly moved by its music of pathos, struggle and furious determination.
