Beethoven Symphony No. 9 (London)

May

26

Sunday

Britten Sinfonias Beethoven Symphony Cycle, conducted by Thomas Ads, concludes with Beethovens mighty choral symphony and Gerald Barrys feverish The Eternal Recurrence.

Beethovens extraordinary Ninth Symphony is regarded by many as the finest of all symphonies, and its message of humanity, perhaps most famously encapsulated in the symphonys Ode to Joy chorus, continues to resonate today (not least, as the anthem for the European Union). Here, Beethovens masterful celebration of the human race is paired with Gerald Barrys The Eternal Recurrence, a brilliant, feverish setting of texts from Nietzsches philosophical novel Also sprach Zarathustra.
