- Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage
- Symphony No.2
With Ludwig van Beethoven, nothing is predictable. His Second Symphony takes classical tradition, gives it a double-shot of caffeine, and stands it on its head: the result is one of the sunniest and (yes!) funniest symphonies ever composed.
Karina Canellakis brings all her energy to Mendelssohn’s seafaring overture and - since it’s the Fourth of July - she opens with the haunting Lyric for Strings by George Walker, a true American original.
Our free minibus service between Audley End Station and Saffron Hall will not be in operation for this event.
