Thomas Adès and Britten Sinfonia’s journey through Beethoven’s Symphonies reaches the half-way point with the perennially popular, vivacious Symphony No 5 and the subdued, poignant Symphony No 4.

In this performance, Adès and the orchestra interpret and illuminate these two monuments of the orchestral repertoire, alongside the inventive music of Irish composer, Gerald Barry. The concert features the London premiere of Barry’s Piano Concerto written specially for, and performed by Nicolas Hodges.
