BBC Symphony Orchestra - Absolute Beethoven?

BBC Symphony Orchestra - Absolute Beethoven?

Sunday, January 19, 2020 - 15:00

Surely you jest? A Beethoven inspired concert with a difference from the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Portuguese powerhouse conductor Joana Carneiro. The ‘Eroica’ symphony blew classical music sky-high and the Grosse Fuge still sounds modern after nearly 200 years. John Adams’s Absolute Jest – starring the Doric Quartet – absorbs musical artifacts, saluting Beethoven the way he would have wanted: with one enormous musical joke.

Symphony No 3 in E flat, 'Eroica'
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Grosse Fuge
Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Absolute Jest, for string quartet and orchestra
John Adams (1947-)
