The Night Shift

Bill and Ted, Clockwork Orange, Die Hard, everyone loves a bit of Beethoven.  And apart from doing the soundtracks to all those awesome films, he also wrote music of his own! 

One of which we’re going to perform in true Night Shift style on 26 November, with lead violinist Margaret Faultless at the helm.  Beethoven described Symphony No. 8 as one of his best works, but it’s often criminally overlooked in favour of his seventh, so tonight we’re setting that right.  Not only will you get to hear this masterpiece performed on gut strings true to the day it was written, we’ll also let you clap when you want, drink alcoholic beverages and chat just as though you were at home (except with an Orchestra).

Plus, with the help of nimble fingered über-pianists Robert Levin and Ya-Fei Chuang, we’re even going to give you a taste of Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Two Pianos, written when he was just 14 years old (and it’s well good).
