Thomas Adès Beethoven Symphony Cycle

with Britten Sinfonia

6 June 2017 / 19:30

Beethoven's Third is paired with Barry's ferocious orchestral masterpiece Chevaux de Frise in this second collaboration between Adès and Britten Sinfonia.

Arguably the symphony that changed everything and kick-started the Romantic period in music is the focus of this concert. Conducting Britten Sinfonia, Adès places Beethoven’s towering Eroica symphony alongside Gerald Barry’s Chevaux de Frise.
