In the midst of despair, Beethoven produced one of his most extrovert and optimistic works. In the Symphony No. 2, Beethoven is truly becoming Beethoven – the music crackling into life with spirit, incision and drive yet underpinned by a very 19th century sense of order. The same can be said of the composer’s ‘Triple’ concerto – a score of balance and beauty that can still make room for joy, and reaches for a lively Polish folk dance in its gregarious finale. Three musicians who fully deserve the label ‘great’ join Marios Papadopoulos and the Orchestra for this latest chapter in the Oxford Beethoven Festival.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21:30

Supported by Prof. Raymond Dwek & Mrs Sandra Dwek in honour of the Ben-Gurion University’s 50th anniversary, and by Geoffrey & Caroline de Jager

Tickets: £40.00 £30.00 £20.00
