In light of the measures enforced to restrict the spread of COVID-19, the BBC SSO has taken the inevitable but regrettable decision to cancel its Beethoven Roots Festival. This cancellation includes not only the concerts in the symphony cycle (14 – 21 May 2020) but also the three supporting chamber events in May and June.

Ticketholders will be refunded by the box office when its service resumes.  


“What do I care for your wretched fiddle when I am speaking to my God?” exclaimed Beethoven. His 12 violin sonatas are like a diary of his inner struggle between instinct and intellect, private and public, songful violin and impassioned piano. They’re perfect for James Ehnes – in the words of The Telegraph, “a thinker of the violin as well as a supreme virtuoso of the instrument” – and with pianist Andrew Armstrong, they’ll perform Beethoven’s last three violin sonatas, including the extraordinary, extrovert ‘Kreutzer’ Sonata, arguably the greatest of them all.
