Beethoven Symphonies No 7 & 8

In Spring 2017, Britten Sinfonia launched a new three-year Beethoven Symphony Cycle, with Thomas Adès as director and conductor. Adès interleaves Beethoven’s masterworks with the audacious and sometimes explosive music of the wonderfully idiosyncratic Irish composer, Gerald Barry, exploring these monuments of the orchestral repertoire. Hearing how one of the most celebrated composer/conductors working today will interpret and illuminate these iconic works, is sure to be a major event in the classical music calendar.

“Adès makes you hear things with which you thought you were familiar as if they were completely new” Tom Service, The Guardian
