The closing work of this concert, Beethoven’s Symphony No 2, is preceded by three choral works by both Beethoven and Schubert that remain relatively rarely heard. Among them is Beethoven’s idiosyncratic and charming Choral Fantasy, which presages his 9th Symphony. Five soloists will add a further dimension to the familiar chemistry between the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra and its Music Director Gábor Takács-Nagy.
