Absolute Beethoven?

Surely you jest? A Beethoven inspired concert with a difference from the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Portuguese powerhouse conductor Joana Carneiro. The ‘Eroica’ symphony blew classical music sky-high and the Grosse Fuge still sounds modern after nearly 200 years. John Adams’ Absolute Jest – starring the Doric Quartet – absorbs musical artifacts, saluting Beethoven the way he would have wanted: with one enormous musical joke.
