Part of the Hallé/BBC Philharmonic’s Beethoven cycle, Beyond the Score® offers concert-goers a ‘dramatic exploration’ of Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony in a concept originally developed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Gerard McBurney, composer, broadcaster, arranger and writer, and creator of the series says: ‘Through live actors, stunning visual projections and excerpts performed by the Hallé, the compelling story of Beethoven’s art unfolds, illuminating the world that shaped the music’s creation. After the interval the audience hears the complete symphony armed with their new understanding of its genesis.’ The young Hungarian Gergely Madaras returns to conduct this special event – ‘His name is one to watch’ was the verdict of the Financial Times, an endorsement doubtless echoed by Hallé audiences.
