‘Oh you millions, I embrace you – here’s a kiss for all the world!’ Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is more than just the natural climax of any Beethoven anniversary celebration. It’s one of those pieces that transcends its era, and with an all-star team of soloists, and a conductor with an unmistakable sense of theatre, it should have something uniquely compelling to say on this occasion. Beethoven’s delightful, rarely-heard Choral Fantasy, meanwhile, is like seeing the Ninth Symphony taking baby-steps, and the concert opens in a blaze of glory from Beethoven’s hero Handel: like the Ninth Symphony, a masterpiece that was created especially for London.

Concert generously supported by Mrs Aline Foriel-Destezet.

This concert is in honour of HRH The Duke of Kent celebrating 40 years of royal patronage of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
