IRONY AND JOY (Beethoven Cycle Continued)
The tribute of the Cyprus Symphony Orchestra to the unparalleled genius of Beethoven continues with his Symphony no. 8, a lighthearted masterpiece containing passages that could even be perceived as musical jokes. This comical angle – irony and joy! – is what connects Beethoven’s symphony with the other two works of this programme: While Rossini’s La scala di seta - an operatic farsa comica - is genuinely comical, Richard Strauss’ Burlesque flirts with the idea of a witty parody of the “serious”concerto genre.
