About the Show/Event
Information for Prom 74 - Beethoven Night at The Royal Albert Hall, Inner London (Concert). Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood's tradition of composer-themed nights continues here with Beethoven. The composer's revolutionary Fifth Symphony provides the climax of a programme that also includes music from his dramatic 'rescue' opera Fidelio. Bach's music was a passion shared by Beethoven and Wood, and is represented here by Elgar's orchestration of the Fantasia and Fugue in C minor for organ.
Performers Elizabeth Watts (soprano).
Company NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover. Conductor Andrew Manze.
