Finnish composer Magnus Lindberg’s working life has been touched by the work of Beethoven in the past and here once again, using inspiration from Beethoven’s private Conversation Books, he peers into the mind of a genius. The only ballet Beethoven composed, The Creatures of Prometheus can be seen as a manifestation of the lineage that took Haydn’s knack for narrative, Mozart’s technical wizardry and fireworks, and Beethoven’s own sense of the darkly dramatic.
