ERSO Unpacked – Exploring Beethoven’s 8th Symphony


An introduction to one of the most enigmatic pieces by one of the world’s most celebrated composers.

The Ernest Read Symphony Orchestra will unpack the twists and turns of this joyful but confusing piece! Find out why this short, energetic symphony is such a radical and forward-thinking work through musical examples played by the orchestra and commentary from conductor Christopher Stark.
