Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the London Symphony Orchestra ignite the exhilarating drama of Beethoven’s Choral Symphony, crowned with the luminous voices of The Monteverdi Choir for the concluding Ode to Joy. The towering majesty of Beethoven’s great masterpiece is cast alongside the composer’s first youthful adventure in symphonic form.
BBC Music magazine’s Editor, Oliver Condy, recommends tonight’s concert: “The LSO, one of the world’s most thrilling orchestras, knows its Beethoven, there’s no doubt. And you can be sure that Sir John Eliot Gardiner will bring his huge experience of authentic performance to this concert. Top-notch singers too. A real treat.”
