Event Navigation

Sir John Eliot Gardiner’s approach to Beethoven takes us to the raison d’être of the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, summoning the extraordinary originality of music which was first thrust before an audience in the wake of the French Revolution and at the dawn of the Romantic era. The orchestra’s recording of the famous Fifth Symphony has been described (by Gramophone Magazine) as a “tour de force… played at white heat”, and the Seventh as “glorious” and “magnificent”; these concerts will give audiences the chance to experience the full cycle of symphonies alongside Beethoven’s only ballet, The Creatures of Prometheus.
