Sir John Eliot Gardiner by Sim Canetty-Clarke
Beethoven the boisterous humorist, heaven-storming revolutionary, and all-embracing humanist appear in his last two symphonies. The Eighth is a bubbly romp with a witty imitation of a metronome in its second movement and a tip of its hat to Haydn in its minuet. From its mysterious opening to its joyous choral finale, the Ninth is grander and more dramatic than anything that came before. Experience its groundbreaking power as that 1824 audience would have when the musicians of the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique perform on instruments of that time.
