Symphony No. 7
Symphony No. 8
A game of musical chairs plus a short but inventive symphony all bought together with a jubilant and joyous close, Britten Sinfonia’s Beethoven Cycle continues with Symphonies No. 7 and No. 8
Thomas Adès and Britten Sinfonia continue their journey through Beethoven’s symphonies with the brief, brilliantly inventive Symphony No.7 and the jubilant Eighth. Irish composer (and Beethoven devotee) Gerald Barry draws on melodies that he loves in Dead March, then allows them to behave as if “everything is possible”.
