Viola Concerto (world premiere tour)
Symphony No. 7
Symphony No. 8
A game of musical chairs plus a short but inventive symphony all brought together with a jubilant and joyous close. Britten Sinfonia and Thomas Adès’ Beethoven partnership, described by The Times as “dazzlingly played… impelled by Thomas Adès’ impassioned conducting” returns with Symphonies No. 7 and No. 8.
