Middlesbrough Beethoven 2020: The Next Generation 4

Middlesbrough Town Hall

Christian Reif conductor
Royal Northern Sinfonia

Beethoven Symphony No.8
Sam Gooderham New Commission
Beethoven Symphony No.7

Fondly referred to be Beethoven as ‘my little symphony in F’, the Eighth may be one of the shortest symphonies of the 19th century, but it is certainly no less compelling than his more substantial works. Paired with the dancing rhythms and swelling melodies of Symphony No.7, described by Tchaikovsky as ‘full of unrestrained joy’.
