RUSH HOUR #4: UNCONDUCTED
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO
Beethoven Overture from ‘The Creatures of Prometheus’
Beethoven Symphony No.5
with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields
Good versus evil, light versus dark, hope versus despair: here an extra element of drama is added to Beethoven’s invigorating symphony. With no conductor, the musicians must read a myriad of tiny signals and gestures within the ensemble to navigate their way through.
Leading the way are the principals of the world-renowned Academy of St Martin in the Fields, performing side-by-side with Southbank Sinfonia as they pass on the skills needed for such a feat.
No booking required, just turn up.
