RUSH HOUR #15: DANCE
#CONCERTLAB
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

Jörg Widmann Fratres
Beethoven Symphony No.7

Holly Mathieson conductor
David Ogle choreographer

In the 1988 film Running on Empty, it’s said that “you can’t dance to Beethoven”. But why not? His Seventh Symphony is a piece with dancing in its very DNA. Wagner famously called it ‘the apotheosis of the dance’, and the passing of time does nothing to dilute music’s invitation to move. In our #ConcertLab finale, the musicians will explore the limits of physicality in performance, bringing dance into music that pulsates with rhythmic energy.

Con brio was composed as a partner to Beethoven’s whirling symphony, unleashing musical fury by taking fragments of the original and remixing them for a modern take on the 19th century orchestra.
