Glenn Christensen performs as soloist in Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in the fourth MET Concert for this year, presented by The Metropolitan Orchestra (TMO). Now a full-time member with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Glenn is also a member of the Lyrebird Trio who last performed with The Metropolitan Orchestra in 2014.
He joins Chief Conductor Sarah-Grace Williams in this concert titled “The Great” which also features Franz Schubert’s final symphony, the Symphony No.9 in the second half of the concert. The symphony begins with a noble, reflective and grandiose theme depicting a sense of space which has helped give the symphony its nickname. With a finale boasting a relentless momentum along with a choral movement reflective of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, this high-spirited performance will enthrall listeners, drawing them along from the first noble theme through to the last joyous note.
