Imagine this. It’s 1805 and Beethoven drops a ground-breaking symphony dedicated to the hero of his time, Napoleon.

Birtwistle Night’s Black Bird (c.12 mins) Donghoon Shin Cello Concerto ‘Nachtergebung’ (c.22 mins) Beethoven Symphony No.3 ‘Eroica’ (c.52 mins)

Jaemin Han cello Ryan Wigglesworth conductor

With two explosive chords, Beethoven’s Eroica symphony launched a new era for music and created a world of limitless sonic potential. It’s revolutionary in every sense, and for our Chief Conductor Ryan Wigglesworth – a composer himself – it’s the natural culmination of a concert filled with sounds that stretch the bounds of possibility. The poetry of Georg Trakl finds a wordless voice in Donghoon Shin’s wild and wonderful new cello concerto (and the young South Korean cellist Jaemin Han has been described as “a staggering talent”). The late Harrison Birtwistle, meanwhile, dives deep into nocturnal melancholy, and finds both terror and beauty: a potent tribute, in what would have been Birtwistle’s 90th birthday year.
