To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth, Royal Northern Sinfonia perform the nine symphonies that changed the course of classical music, works that still inspire young conductors and composers today.
St Cuthbert's Church, Carlisle
Christian Reif conductor
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Beethoven Symphony No.8 (26')
Sam Gooderham New Commission (8')
Beethoven Symphony No.7 (36')
Fondly referred to by Beethoven as "my little symphony in F", the Eighth may be one of the shortest symphonies of the 19th century, but it is certainly no less compelling than his more substantial works. Paired with the dancing rhythms and swelling melodies of Symphony No.7, described by Tchaikovsky as "full of unrestrained joy".
