Anna Clyne's music gets right under your skin and creates impressive images. Her piece ›Sound and Fury‹ is inspired by Haydn's Symphony No. 60, which can be heard earlier in this concert, and by Shakespeare's ›Macbeth‹. Clyne takes her audience on an invigorating, boisterous, yet lighthearted and thoughtful journey through these two classics of cultural history.
Caroline Shaw's Entr'acte refers to a work by Joseph Haydn, the last string quartet he completed. The all-round musician plays with Haydn's musical ideas and brings them straight into the 21st century. Beethoven's Seventh Symphony concludes this powerful evening.
