About This Event

Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood’s tradition of composer-themed nights continues here with Beethoven.

The composer’s revolutionary Fifth Symphony provides the climax of a programme that also includes music from his dramatic ‘rescue’ opera Fidelio.

Bach’s music was a passion shared by Beethoven and Wood, and is represented here by Elgar’s orchestration of the Fantasia and Fugue in C minor for organ.

Approx. end time: 21:50
