Beethoven Symphony No 7
Antonio Méndez Conductor
Regula Mühlemann Soprano
Young Spanish conductor Antonio Méndez is one of the classical world’s fastest-rising stars, in demand across Europe and the US by some of the world’s leading orchestras. He makes his SCO debut with two powerful symphonies: Mozart’s compelling 25th, with its turbulent drama and restless rhythms, and the bracing energy of Beethoven’s Seventh, described by Wagner as ‘the apotheosis of the dance’.
In between, highly regarded Swiss-born opera soprano Regula Mühlemann joins the Orchestra for a collection of vivid concert arias by Mozart.
