“Oh you men, who think me malevolent, stubborn and hostile – how deeply you wrong me!” In an age when private emotions became explosively public, the unstoppable optimism of Beethoven’s music – written in defiance of an agonising disability – was itself a revolutionary act. The heaven-storming exuberance of the Second and Seventh Symphonies is at the heart of this concert. Alongside it, discover the folk songs and sacred music that surrounded Beethoven in Vienna, as well as the bold new music of the French Revolution – whose echoes could be heard across a continent. And hear how Beethoven transformed it all into pure, life-affirming energy.
