Conductor Giordano Bellincampi
Beethoven Symphony No.4
Beethoven Symphony No.5
After the Eroica, Beethoven returned to his Classical roots. Lithe and sophisticated, the ebullient Fourth Symphony is the ultimate Haydn tribute, and is Beethoven at his most outgoing and confident.
Then a complete change of mood. The extraordinarily original Fifth Symphony is a work of staggering power. It is unremittingly terse and intense; it begins in darkness and ends in blazing jubilation; it is one of the most famous pieces of music ever written, and with good reason. It doesn’t matter how well you know Beethoven 5 - a performance is always an event.
This event is part of a four concert series where we will be playing all nine of Beethoven's symphonies. Book all four concerts to save 15%!
