Beethoven 5 at Saffron Hall

Sun 31 July 2022
4:00 pm, Saffron Hall

Aurora returns to Saffron Hall with Beethoven’s mighty Fifth Symphony.

We’ll be harnessing the unique potential of an orchestra playing without music stands or sheet music to get inside Beethoven’s music: taking apart this much-loved work with the help of BBC Radio 3’s Tom Service, before delivering a complete performance of the symphony from memory.

We’ll also be joined by the incomparable Patricia Kopatchinskaja for Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No.1.
