2001: New Century, New Sounds

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

Masterworks from 1801, 1901 and 2001, by Beethoven Scriabin and Eötvös, open the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision project.

With the anarchic chords that open his First Symphony, Ludwig van Beethoven threw open the doors on a universe of new musical possibilities.

A century later, in 1901, the young Alexander Scriabin wrote a Second Symphony whose surging melodies and ardent spirit stand on the brink of a new revelation; and in 2001, Péter Eötvös’s brilliantly quirky trumpet concerto revels in its imaginative freedom.

In the first concert of our 2020 Vision project, Vladimir Jurowski celebrates Beethoven’s 250th birthday the way he would have wanted – a conversation between the past, the present and the future of music.
