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!
