BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 8 in F major, Op. 93
Led by Grammy Award-winning virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields has an international reputation for its distinctive, polished and refined sound.
Their program features a long-lost Benjamin Britten arrangement of the second movement of Schumann’s Violin Concerto, the Elegy for Orchestra (arranged as an elegy in memory of Dennis Brain). Discovered by Joshua Bell’s friend, the cellist Steven Isserlis in the Britten archives, this work has not been performed since 1958, the year the Academy was founded.
