Britten Sinfonia Beethoven Symphony Cycle Part 1

Summary

“Adès makes you hear things with which you thought you were familiar as if they were completely new” wrote the Guardian’s Tom Service and in this Beethoven Symphony cycle, the enthralling composer and conductor Thomas Adès is sure to shed new light on these monuments of orchestral repertoire. Over the course of three years Britten Sinfonia and Thomas Adès will perform all nine Beethoven symphonies, partnering these masterworks with the deft, audacious and sometimes explosive music of the wonderfully idiosyncratic Irish composer, Gerald Barry.

In the opening concert of this three-year project, we hear Beethoven’s witty first symphony paired with the virtuosic second. These are complemented by Gerald Barry’s powerful setting of Beethoven’s love letter to his ‘immortal beloved’.

Find out more about the second concert in the Beethoven Symphony Cycle here.
