It’s Not the World Cup of (largely) classical music, Semi-final 2!

All the teams in round 1 of the world cup football represented by short pieces of music. Now at the Semi-finals: listen/ vote/ share. One country goes to the final…

FRANCE – Hector Berlioz: Roman Carnival overture
GERMANY – Ludwig van Beethoven: Egmont overture

NB – both the music videos contain an excessive amount of orchestral tuning – so you may want to skip the first 50 seconds of both – sorry (but they’re still my favourite filmed YT performances – and maybe you like watching the tuning (I do sometimes!))

Want to know more about the Berlioz – check out the Cacophony podcast episode on it.
