Britten Sinfonia - Beethoven Symphony Cycle (Nos 7 & 8)

Britten Sinfonia
Thomas Ades, conductor

Beethoven: Symphony No. 7
Gerald Barry: Dead March
Beethoven: 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”.

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

Britten Sinfonia’s Beethoven Symphony Cycle, conducted by Thomas Adès, concludes with Beethoven’s mighty ‘choral’ symphony and Gerald Barry’s feverish The Eternal Recurrence.

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.
