MCO launch new film series on the Beethoven Symphonies

Though we’re sad not to be performing our Beethoven Symphony Cycle for you live at the Barbican this week, we’re delighted to announce the launch of our new nine-part film series in which John Eliot Gardiner and the ORR explore these incredible works as we rehearsed for this project.

The first instalment in this series ‘Symphony No. 1: Beethoven Announces Himself’ will be available to watch on our YouTube channel from 5pm today (Friday 15 May), with subsequent films on each of Beethoven’s symphonic works released every Friday.
