The Eroica Symphony marked a ‘before and after’ in orchestral music. The critics of the time ‎did not understand that a symphony could last more than half an hour, that instruments ‎could be used in such a forceful way or that expressive themes could be raised to another ‎level (in fact, this would be the inception of ‘Romanticism’). But time has proved him right ‎and it has become one of the most performed works in history.‎

María Dueñas, from Granada, is a violin prodigy: she has not yet turned 18 but has already showcased ‎her talent on the world’s greatest stages. With the OBC she will perform one of the most important ‎concerts in the repertoire, that of Beethoven, a work par excellence, that contains everything a soloist of ‎her standing needs to take on the challenge: virtuosity, expressiveness, elegance, energy and good ‎taste.‎
