Concerts & Tickets

Beethoven 251 was a festival whose charitable focus, under the auspices of The Outcry Ensemble, was to support young freelancers as they return to performing post Covid-19. Any surplus funds went straight back into raising the fees of the players.

Our next concert, all proceeds of ticket sales will go to support the Alzheimer’s Society

If you would like to support the society above and beyond the price of your ticket, please use the link here

Please note that, if government regulations change and performances have to be cancelled because of Covid-19 restrictions, all tickets and donations will be refunded.

Concert 1
Monday 28 June, 7.30pm
Beethoven Symphonies 1 & 3
This first concert combines Beethoven’s cheeky and clever opening symphony with his epic and heroic 3rd. “Eroica” changes the course of music history.

Concert 2
Tuesday 29 June, 7.30pm
Beethoven Symphonies 2 & 4
These two symphonies show Beethoven at his most joyful and wittiest. The 2nd symphony with its fast pace and sudden contrasts; the 4th with its ravishingly beautiful 2nd movement and thrilling finale.

Concert 3
Thursday 1 July, 7.30pm
Beethoven Symphonies 5 & 6
A combination mirroring the concert when these first two pieces were heard, the third concert is Beethoven at his most radical. Light conquers dark in both of these symphonies as Beethoven takes us on a revolutionary struggle through the 5th and navigates through a storm in the Pastoral 6th.

Concert 4
Friday 2 July, 7.30pm
Beethoven Symphonies 8 & 7
Our final concert is a marathon. The fantastically condensed and intimate 8th symphony is jam-packed with ideas and twists and turns whilst the 7th, a piece known for exhausting its players, ends our week of Beethoven!
