Details

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.
