Adès conducts Beethoven

In this concert the enthralling composer and conductor Thomas Adès will shed new light on Beethoven’s witty first symphony, which is here paired with the virtuosic second. These are complemented by Gerald Barry’s powerful setting of Beethoven’s letter to his ‘immortal beloved’.

“Adès makes you hear things which you thought were familiar as if they were completely new.

Coming up at the Norfolk and Norwich Festival 12-28 May

The Norfolk and Norwich Festival runs from Friday 12-Sunday 28 May this year and has a packed classical music and jazz programme as well as some great contemporary and popular music, from the traditional to the ‘right out there’. It’s an exciting time and this is a real chance to try something new. Here are a couple of videos that the Festival has produced to showcase what is coming up which gives you a good idea of what is coming up and who is doing the programming. This is the swan-song Festival for artistic director William Galinsky who is moving on to develop his own work so he has put a lot of energy into the programme this year.

It is worth booking ahead as some things sell out quickly but then, even if something is sold out, it is worth checking back for returns – I just managed to book some Philip Glass tickets as a few became available this week. Theatre Royal Norwich manages all the bookings on 01603 630000 or via www.theatreroyalnorwich.co.uk.

One of the highlights this year is a production by Norwich’s very own Voice Project producers Sian Croose and Jon Baker called In The Arms of Sleep – it’s a classical music/choral sleepover in the Assembly House in Norwich which offers 40 audience members the chance to take a bed, make themselves comfy and fall asleep listening to a 10 hour choral performance, voices permeating their slumbers and waking them with a chorus. Some people might find the idea of sleeping with 39 strangers a bit daunting but it will be an experience – when will you get the chance to do something like this again?
