BBC Four celebrates and reappraises the giant of the orchestral repertoire, the symphony, in this new four-part series with archive symphonic performances.
This new series traces the story of the symphony and the surprising way in which it has shaped us and our modern world. Actor and self-confessed "symphony obsessive" Simon Russell Beale takes viewers on a journey to discover how the symphony emerged from an environment of aristocratic privilege to become a symbol of freedom and a tool of totalitarianism.
In the first part, Simon brings his unique style of storytelling to the origins of the symphony and to the three great composers who shaped the form. He explores the world of Joseph Haydn, the "Father of the Symphony"; Mozart, the genius who wrote his first symphony at the age of 8; and Beethoven, the epitome of the great composer, whose Eroica symphony was to set the standard for the next 150 years.
Travelling across Europe Simon visits the locations where these composers lived and worked. From the sumptuous Esterházy Palace in Austria to the marble austerity of Napoleon's tomb in Paris, he evokes the vanished world of the 18th and 19th centuries and draws us through music into the heart of the French Revolution.
The music is specially performed on period instruments by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, directed by Sir Mark Elder.
See the BBC Four Symphony Press Release for further information on Symphony, and BBC Four and Radio 3's complementary programming.

Steve Backshall is back in his Deadly HQ for another high-tech forensic investigation into some of the world's greatest predators and their prey.
In this week's show the predators under the spotlight are all aerial assassins that hunt on the wing – the fastest insect in the world, the emperor dragonfly, races after the super agile damselfly; a Daubenton's bat uses sonar to track down an acrobatic yellow underwing moth; and a sharp-sighted kestrel dive-bombs a hidden vole.
Each exhilarating hunt is analysed by Steve as he attempts to uncover which will win in each epic battle for survival.
