Get under the skin of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 with Aurora Orchestra, who return to the Norfolk & Norwich Festival for the first time in seven years.
No symphony pulses more vigorously with the rhythms of political protest than Beethoven’s ‘Eroica’, whose defiant opening chords mark the arrival of the Romantic symphony.
Aurora Orchestra is known for its signature creative ethos, combining world-class performance with trailblazing presentation and programming. In 2014, they became the first professional orchestra in the modern era to perform a symphony entirely from memory, in which they performed Mozart’s 40th Symphony at the BBC Proms. They’ve collaborated widely across art forms and musical genres, working with an exceptional breadth of artists, ranging from Sarah Connolly, Ian Bostridge and Leonidas Kavakos to Wayne McGregor, Edmund de Waal and Björk.
‘Their Beethoven was full of fizz, energy and infectious spirit, one of the most vivid live performances of this symphony I have experienced… it was so much more than a memory test for the sake of it – this was truly live in every sense.’ – Bachtrack
‘Playing Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony without the score is no mean feat, but Aurora Orchestra pulled it off’ – Evening Standard
