Britten Sinfonia with Thomas Adès: Beethoven Symphony No. 6

Britten Sinfonia with Thomas Adès: Beethoven Symphony No. 6

Presented by Saffron Hall

Beethoven takes inspiration from nature, allowing his imagination to range vividly across the countryside in his thrilling “Pastoral” symphony. In this concert, the Pastoral is juxtaposed with Barry’s passionate The Conquest of Ireland for orchestra and bass, based on a 12th century account of Henry II’s military conquest of Ireland.
