About This Concert

Music as Beethoven would have experienced it, on instruments of the time.

As part of the celebrations to commemorate the 250th anniversary of his birth, the acclaimed Consone Quartet and The Hanover Band are performing an innovative programme of Beethoven’s String Quartets and Symphonies, in a week long festival of Beethoven.

Beethoven in Arundel will feature 3 concerts of String Quartets and all 9 symphonies, performed at St Nicholas Church, a “hidden gem” of Arundel, on period instruments which Beethoven himself would have been familiar with, culminating in Beethoven’s magnificent 9th (choral) symphony, performed on Saturday 29 August, 2020.

The concerts are particularly focussed on encouraging younger generations to experience Beethoven and enjoy classic music in general. For this reason, The Hanover Band is offering tickets free to all those aged 30 and under.

The Hanover Band

HANOVER (Not Hannover; Germany) In terms of British history the majority of the music we play is from the Hanoverian period. Hanover also refers to Hanover Square in London, where Haydn performed his symphonies and arias in the Salomon Concerts in the 1790’s.

BAND (ref: The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians)
‘An instrumental ensemble, larger than a chamber ensemble. Thus the ’24 violins’ of Louis XIV were called ‘la grande bande’ to distinguish them from Lully’s ‘petits violons’, and Charles II’s similar ensemble was known as ‘the King’s Band’. By extension, ‘band’ came to mean an orchestra in colloquial British usage’.

THE HANOVER BAND a period name for a period orchestra.
