Information
Like yesterday, Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra are once again confronting the music of Berg with that of Beethoven. Berg’s Lulu Suite brings together music from the opera to create a symphony with solo soprano. It forms a counterpoint to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, in which Beethoven strives to embrace the whole world. Despite the many contrasts between the two composers, the wealth of detail in Berg’s music derives directly from Beethoven and forms a bridge between them. And another significant commonality (alluded to by Berg’s use of popular tunes): the great old city of Vienna with its rich musical tradition.
