We complete our celebrations of Beethoven’s 250th birthday with his bright and optimistic Eighth Symphony, followed by his ‘Choral’ Symphony, frequently dubbed the greatest piece of all time.
Emmanuel Krivine is quite simply one of today’s finest interpreters of Beethoven. His focus on every detail in the score, delivers exhilarating performances, and by the end of the Ninth you will want to stand up and shout for joy!
