At 7.30pm on Wednesday 3 November at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham, the world-renowned Aurora Orchestra and its conductor Nicholas Collon will perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 from memory and will also perform Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with star violinist Nicola Benedetti.
In 2014, Aurora became the first orchestra in history to present an entire symphony from memory, without sheet music or music stands. Since then, they have continued to embrace this thrilling, intensely communicative style of presentation as a hallmark of their work, harnessing the potential of memorised performance to open up music in new and illuminating ways.
In this concert in Nottingham they will explore Beethoven’s Symphony No.7, with an introduction to the symphony presented by Nicholas Collon and BBC Radio 3 presenter Tom Service, followed by a complete performance by heart.
They also welcome back stellar violinist Nicola Benedetti as soloist for her second appearance this year with the orchestra, performing Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. https://www.auroraorchestra.com/event/insidebeethoven-nottingham/
