Ian Skelly presents the Britten Sinfonia from the Barbican in London. Thomas Adès and the Orchestra continue their three year long Beethoven symphony cycle with no. 6, the Pastoral. As before, Beethoven's music is paired with the inventive music of Irish composer Gerald Barry: Bass Joshua Bloom is the soloist in Barry's The Conquest of Ireland, based on a 12th century account of Henry II's military conquest of Ireland.
