2008: Landscape and Memory

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

This event has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.

Contemplate nature with music from 1808, 1908 and 2008, by Beethoven, Ives and Adès, in the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s 2020 Vision project.

1908: Charles Ives’s trumpet asks an eternal question.

1808: Beethoven offers the only answer that’s ever really been needed: a symphony inspired by the countryside, whose storms, bird-calls and hymns conceal eternal truths behind some of the most serene music he ever wrote.

And in between, Thomas Adès takes on the Book of Genesis, in a piano concerto – first performed at Royal Festival Hall in 2008 – that’s simultaneously a meditation on the infinite, and an endlessly stimulating entertainment.

A piece, wrote The Guardian, ‘to inspire big thoughts about creation – of the world, or of music, or both’.
