Celebrate Beethoven’s gleaming diamond of the chamber repertory in this special program which also features works by Ravel and Richard Strauss, highlighting the strength of the MSO’s strings, woodwind and brass.
‘Melodious, harmonious and majestic in structure it showcases how masterful Beethoven was at reaching new horizons both in writing for each instrument and for the art of chamber music. Till Eulenspiegel’s jocular nature springs off the pages of this chamber arrangement abounding in sparkling wit and humour, just like a twinkle in the eye.’ Sophie Rowell, Associate Concertmaster.
Running Time: 1 hour and 50 minutes, including a 20-minute interval
