2117384Beethoven Symphony Cycle (No 6)
DateThursday 24th May 2018
DescriptionThomas Adès juxtaposes Beethoven’s life-affirming Symphony No 6 with Gerald Barry’s passionate The Conquest of Ireland.

Beethoven takes inspiration from nature, allowing his imagination to range vividly across the Austrian countryside in his thrilling, intricate ‘Pastoral’ symphony. For Thomas Adès, Gerald Barry’s ‘ferociously objective’ music is a natural partner for Beethoven. In this concert, the 6th is juxtaposed with Barry’s passionate The Conquest of Ireland for orchestra and bass, based on a 12th-century account of Henry II’s military conquest of Ireland.
