Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony

First performed: Sun 2 August 2015

Aurora performs Beethoven’s irresistible ode to nature, the Pastoral Symphony, entirely from memory — the direct, communicative performance style which has since become a hallmark of Aurora’s Proms appearances and has inspired other experiments in memorised performance across the globe.

“Marvellous… Playing from memory, Aurora created an organic sense of community, dynamism and inspiration.” The New York Times
