Stunning. Epic. Unforgettable. Beethoven’s Seventh is one of the most popular symphonies of all time, and its influence marches on – its sombre second movement anchored the climactic moment of the 2010 Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech. Hear Symphony Nova Scotia perform this breathtaking masterpiece alongside Mozart’s delightful Marriage of Figaro and Prokofiev’s colourful and demanding Concerto no. 2, featuring the virtuoso violin chops of our own Renaud Lapierre.

*Please note: the program for this concert has changed. Schubert’s Fantasy in F minor will be replaced by Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro Overture.

Watch this incredible climactic scene from The King’s Speech, featuring Beethoven’s Seventh.
