London Philharmonic Orchestra: Championing Freedom
A heroic piece of music brought to life
Beethoven had a social conscience. So much so, that he organised a concert 200 years ago to help lift the spirits of the oppressed. He wanted to grab the notions of liberty and freedom and let them out through music. He succeeded in his intense and emotional Symphony No. 3. Tonight, the LPO performs this piece (with Vladimir Jurowski conducting) as well as Bach’s Violin Concerto in A minor and Karl Amadeus Hartmann’s Concerto funebre. Seating allocated on arrival. Latecomers may not be admitted.
"Jurowski and the LPO were on exceptional form, and the performance had a real edge-of-your-seat excitement."
