Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. Symphony No 3 in E flat, 'Eroica' Op 55 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  2. Grosse Fuge Op 133 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  3. Absolute Jest, for string quartet and orchestra - John Adams

Surely you jest? A Beethoven inspired concert with a difference from the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Portuguese powerhouse conductor Joana Carneiro. The ‘Eroica’ symphony blew classical music sky-high and the Grosse Fuge still sounds modern after nearly 200 years. John Adams’s Absolute Jest – starring the Doric Quartet – absorbs musical artifacts, saluting Beethoven the way he would have wanted: with one enormous musical joke.
