Beethoven Symphony No. 9

Date: 26 May
Time: 19:30
Thomas Adès

Britten Sinfonia

Britten Sinfonia's Beethoven Symphony Cycle, conducted by Thomas Adès, is brought to a triumphant conclusion in 2019 with Beethoven's mighty 'choral' symphony, regarded by many as one of the finest symphonies ever written.

Gerald Barry The Eternal Recurrence
Beethoven Symphony No. 9 (Choral)

Beethoven's extraordinary Ninth Symphony is regarded by many as the finest of all symphonies, and its message of humanity, perhaps most famously encapsulated in the symphony's Ode to Joy chorus, continues to resonate today (not least, as the anthem for the European Union). Here, Beethoven's masterful celebration of the human race is paired with Gerald Barry's The Eternal Recurrence, a brilliant, feverish setting of texts from Nietzsche's philosophical novel Also sprach Zarathustra.

Barbican

Britten Sinfonia is one of the world's most celebrated and pioneering ensembles. The orchestra is acclaimed for its virtuoso musicianship, an inspired approach to concert programming which makes bold, intelligent connections across 400 years of repertoire, and a versatility that is second to none. Britten Sinfonia breaks the mould by not having a principal conductor or director, instead choosing to collaborate with a range of the finest international guest artists from across the musical spectrum, resulting in performances of rare insight and energy.
