Concert Program

Joined by the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra, who will be performing under the baton of German conductor Nabil Shehata, Zee Zee shall present Composer-in-Residence Alexey Shor’s Suite for piano and orchestra No. 3, ‘Childhood Memories’, an intimate work in nine evocative movements which is inspired by the composer’s youth, loosely tracing the path from early childhood and bringing Shor’s experiences of these formative years to life. Ludwig van Beethoven’s majestic Symphony No. 7 shall then follow, first premiered in Vienna on the 8th of December 1813. Written in the shadow of the Napoleonic wars, the work is often regarded as a musical confrontation of sorts, as Europe struggled to free itself from French domination.
