Musicologists usually divide Ludwig van Beethoven’s compositional oeuvre into three periods. In his early period he followed Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Joseph Haydn. The works of his middle period are characterised by heroic themes, while his late period is characterised by intensely personal expression and intellectual depth. At this concert we will hear some of the finest compositions of his “heroic” period: the Egmont Overture, the Violin Concerto in D major  and Symphony No. 7.  They will be conducted by Zubin Mehta, appearing at the Ljubljana Festival for the fifth time. The Indian maestro trained at the Vienna Academy of Music and Performing Arts. Within seven years of arriving in Vienna, he had already conducted both the Wiener (Vienna) and Berliner Philharmoniker (Berlin Philharmonic) and was soon to become one of the most sought after conductors in the world. He will conduct the Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino (Orchestra of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino), which was founded in 1933 and quickly became a centre for new and unconventional ideas regarding the classical and contemporary repertoires. The violin soloist will be Lana Trotovšek, praised by critics for her ability to capture the true feel of live intuitive performance (The Strad)  and for her refined tone, musical sense of phrasing and impeccable intonation (Washington Post).
