Beethoven’s unusual cantata Der glorreiche Augenblick (The Glorious
Moment) is filled with patriotic praise for Vienna and tributes to the kings
and princes of Europe after the defeat of Napoleon. It was performed
alongside his symphonic Wellington’s Victory at its première in 1814.
The Fantasia in C minor for piano, chorus and orchestra opens with a
virtuosic, improvisatory Adagio for the piano. The work’s main theme
anticipates the famous Ode to Joy setting Beethoven later devised for
his Choral Symphony. Artistic Director and Principal Conductor of the City of London Choir
since 1989, Hilary Davan Wetton was founder/conductor of the Holst
Singers and is Conductor Emeritus of the Guildford Choral Society and
the Milton Keynes City Orchestra. He appears regularly on BBC Radio 3
and Classic FM, for which he presented the popular series Masterclass.
Acknowledged as one of Britain’s most prestigious orchestras, the Royal
Philharmonic Orchestra enjoys an international reputation for bringing
audiences worldwide first-class performances and the highest possible
standards of music-making across a diverse range of musical repertoire.
