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.

Donizetti: Il Paria

A rare chance to hear Il Paria, one of Donizetti’s most innovative and daring scores, conducted by Sir Mark Elder with Britten Sinfonia.

Opera Rara is known internationally for bringing rare and neglected operas vividly back to life. Working in partnership with Britten Sinfonia, and featuring acclaimed Russian coloratura soprano Albina Shagimuratova, Opera Rara present Donizetti’s Il Paria, a work that brings a new exotic colour to Italian opera of the period, inspired by its setting in ancient India.

After the festivities have subsided and and you've had about as much seasonal music and turkey as you can take – head over to St James's Church Piccadilly . Virtuoso pianist Warren Mailley-Smith will be entertaining his audience with an upbeat programme that is both restful and refreshingly stimulating. This is just the place to put down your SALES shopping, gather your thoughts, and renew your emotional energy in time for New Years Eve!

With a conveniently early start time, you’ll still be able to make your evening drinks and dinner plans and not miss a second of the performance.

An award-winning concert pianist and a favourite performer for the British Royal Family, Warren offers a programme of Beethoven and Chopin. In 2016 he became the first british pianist to perform Chopin’s complete works from memory. An exceptional talent and a self-deprecating sense of humour, combined with his formidable technical skill and mature musicality, makes him a favourite with audiences and venue staff alike.
