BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 8 Op.93
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 Hanover Band is performing an innovative programme of all nine symphonies at different livery companies across the heart of the City of London.
Beethoven in the City will feature a different symphony in a different venue each time, performed in surroundings and on period instruments which Beethoven himself would have been familiar with, culminating in Beethoven’s magnificent 9th (choral) symphony, performed on his actual birthday at Mansion House on December 16th, 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 and is running a series of interactive afternoon school workshops before each event.
