Guided by our experienced conductor and presenter John Landor, you will be immersed in its musical and historical context and become part of the musical action as we reveal the different layers of the music, explore its meanings - and invite you to help us by humming and clapping along to some of the excerpts!
The first half concludes with our unique orchestra ‘walkabout’, where the musicians perform extracts spread out among the audience, a thrilling close encounter with the sheer physicality of Beethoven’s musical utterances. By the time you hear the work in full after the interval, you will be sure to greet it as an old friend.
