BBC Series on the Symphony, Beethoven and Beyond

BBC Series on the Symphony :Beethoven and Beyond

Simon Russell Beale continues his journey into the world of the symphony with the story of the revolutionary later symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven and their phenomenal impact. We also meet Franz Schubert, whose two greatest symphonies were only discovered after his tragic early death, the obsessive French Romantic Hector Berlioz and the flamboyant pianist-turned-composer Franz Liszt. The music is performed by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment ( a period instruments orchestra) and the Halle, conducted by Sir Mark Elder.
