Eroica Symphony with Han-Na Chang

Big orchestra27 Oct '22 - 30 Oct '22(Past)

Beethoven unleashes a revolution, Prokofiev puts the clock back two centuries: a concert involving musical time travel.


Beethoven’s Eroica sent shock waves through the musical world; never had a symphony come close to being as revolutionary as this. But Beethoven had not wanted to be called a revolutionary: he had seen with his own eyes how upheaval degenerates into tyranny. Prokofiev and Shostakovich would experience something similar a century later. In this concert they ask the question, ‘what if there had been no revolution?’
