Beethoven 9 with Southbank Sinfonia
8:00 pm, Thu 21 June 2018
St John's Waterloo
Anthem of hope, unity and – since 1972 – Europe, Beethoven’s final symphony propels a remarkable transformation from solitude to inclusivity, and silence to glorious harmony.
His was a vision of how humanity together could overcome any adversity. From the most unnerving of silences erupts a symphony of personal turmoil, until music summons a chorus and with it a multitude of voices to sing in unity, stronger as one.
James Hendry, Royal Opera House Jette Parker Young Artist, is a conductor fast gaining acclaim for his electrifying performances.
