Schubert’s youthful exuberance shines through in his Fifth Symphony (composed at the age of 19), bursting with tunes, fresh and full of life. In contrast Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge, originally written for string quartet, is one of the composer’s most profound works.
This concert has been extended and will be available until midnight on Sunday 28 February 2021.

We’ve been thrilled with the positive feedback on these concerts:
The 4* Times review praised "a performance of dancing colours, crisp beauty and punch… Petrenko’s forces played with heart, soul and all the other necessaries in a performance strong enough to overwhelm even a home listener alone with a laptop."
The Guardian remarked on the concert’s “maximum impact for a bold start to virtual season”
“Brilliant concert. Excellent programme. Great to have Stephen Johnson involved. Top class performance. More please ! Bravo !
“The sound quality was excellent and the programme was excellent.”
“This was so beautiful it made me cry”
