Join us in welcoming back flamboyant Corsican conductor Jean Christophe Spinosi – renowned for taking audiences on emotionally explosive journeys.

Rossini is synonymous with sparkling overtures and The Barber of Seville Overture charms from the start, before erupting into pure fireworks! The ICO has commissioned a new encore by Sam Perkin. This rousing work highlights the individual personality of each orchestra member, and his/her unique playing style. No other body of work enjoys more universal respect and popularity than Beethoven’s nine symphonies. We feature Beethoven's two symphonies in the key of C. His meteoric First, brims with originality, full of rich melodies that reflected popular Viennese musical life at the time. His immensely popular Fifth is emotionally thrilling and uplifting, due to its raw power and the overwhelming representation of human triumph over adversity.

“With an exceptional ability to communicate the joy he takes in making music, Spinosi seems to dance and whirl in front of his players, rather than simply conduct them.”
The Guardian
