The ACO's internationally-acclaimed Beethoven symphony series reaches its climax with Symphony No.9, "Ode to Joy", featuring one of the finest British choirs and an exceptional line-up of soloists.

Critics called the ACO's recent Beethoven concert in London “the finest concert of the summer” and spoke of “thrilling playing”, “vibrant drive” and “total involvement”, concluding, “this compact chamber orchestra matches anything Europe can offer in energy, precision and interpretative rigour.”

Building to the symphony, a trio of serene yet intense works, swelling to Beethoven's depiction of a sea voyage.
