Beethoven Symphony No 6 in F major, ‘Pastoral'

 

After their electrifying performance of Brahms' First Symphony earlier this year, Gulbenkian and the University Music Department bring the Aurora Orchestra back to the Colyer-Fergusson Hall to give Beethoven’s dramatic and ground-breaking Pastoral Symphony the same uniquely direct and communicative treatment. Experience the spine-tingling effect of one of Europe’s leading chamber orchestras performing from memory, with no barrier between players and audience.

The performance is introduced by BBC Radio 3’s Tom Service.

“The most bracing breath of air to invigorate the British classical music scene in the past ten years.” (Richard Morrison, The Times)
