Glasgow Concert Halls

Dates and times

Sunday 17 May 2020
3:00PM - 5:30PM

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. 


Every revolution has its roots.


The young Beethoven set out “to receive the spirit of Mozart from the hands of Haydn”, and in this first instalment of our exploration of Beethoven’s musical roots, the sparky, irreverent First Symphony and the mighty, taboo-breaking ‘Eroica’ stand alongside pieces by Beethoven’s teacher Haydn, by his hero Mozart, and by his more popular contemporary Anton Eberl. Expect cosmic harmonies, tragic emotion, and a couple of surprisingly familiar tunes – proof that even a master as original as Beethoven has his ancestors and influences, and that he’s no less powerful for it.

Beethoven
Symphony No.1

Mozart
