Summary

Britten Sinfonia performs at the Peasmarsh Festival for the first time, in an all-Beethoven orchestral concert. The concert opens with one of the composer’s most energetic, humorous and outgoing works, his second symphony, which is often cited as a turning point in his compositional style. Together with Aleksandar Madžar, the festival’s Artistic Directors perform the unique and rarely programmed triple concerto, an irresistibly positive work displaying Beethoven’s lighter side.
