The highly anticipated recording of Thomas Ades and the Britten Sinfonia playing Beethoven and Barry; specifically the Beethoven Symphony Cycle and a selection of Barry’s works. This CD features Beethoven’s first three symphonies, interspersed with Barry’s piece Beethoven (Mark Stone bass) and his Piano Concerto (Nicolas Hodges piano).

Beethoven intended to stake his claim to be the rightful successor to the Viennese classical tradition with the first of his symphonies, premiered in 1800. He had already began to lose his hearing by this point, and when he composed his second symphony, he placed on the page his spirit of defiance and determination against his deafness. The third marks a significant turning point in his style, as well as in the framework of how a symphony was expected to be composed.

Gerald Barry grew up in rural Ireland. His music shows us how his upbringing had an effect on his compositional style - giving a piece a title such as Beethoven would suggest an attempt at emulating his legacy nearly two centuries after his death. Do not be fooled by this however; his music shows his major influence from radio, moving from the sublime and the ridiculous with carefree abandon.

Recorded at the Barbican, London and the Theatre Royal, Brighton, UK, 20th May 2017; 19th May 2017; 22nd May 2018; 2nd June 2017
