It is always a thrill to hear the Aurora Orchestra playing at The Apex and their performances by memory have been particularly exhilarating.

We are delighted that they will be joined by violinist Nicola Benedetti for this concert.

"Dreaming, hearing loss and saying goodbye." So reads the evocative subtitle for Richard Ayres’ No.52 (Three Pieces about Ludwig van Beethoven), premiered by Aurora Orchestra behind closed doors at last year’s BBC Proms. Aurora’s first post-pandemic appearance at The Apex offers the first opportunity for a live audience to experience this radiant, intensely personal work, described by The Times as “Stupendous… unbearably poignant, yet also indefatigably stoic.”

Beethoven’s own voice is heard in his monumental Violin Concerto, performed here with soloist Nicola Benedetti. Nicholas Collon conducts a performance that sees Aurora’s memorised performance approach – with players performing without sheet music or music stands – applied to a concerto for the first time. An unmissable highlight of this summer's welcome return to orchestral music-making.
