Beethoven Grosse Fugue
Philip Sheppard/David Le Page Ashes to Ashes
Beethoven Symphony No.5

Conductor Philip Sheppard
Narrator Paul Morley

‘Rebel Rebel’ examines the cultural impact and far-reaching legacies of two visionary artists who challenged the weight of received ideas and accepted musical norms during their respective lifetimes. This concert takes Beethoven’s most iconic work, the 5th symphony, and intersperses it with beautifully reimagined versions of songs by David Bowie from his extraordinary catalogue of recorded material. Both men were possessed by an innate compulsion to reinvent themselves and their work. Despite coming from opposing ends of the musical spectrum they nevertheless shared an astonishing motivation to be in control of their own artistic destinies.

OOTS strives to make access to high-quality classical music as easy as possible for everyone. As such, we are opening up 3 of our Stratford upon Avon rehearsals for local audiences that may not wish to attend the more formal evening concert. On the afternoons of 5th May between 2.30pm and 3.30pm, people are welcome to join us to meet our players and listen to part of the rehearsal and concert programme. The session finishes with a cup of tea and a chat. Due to the relaxed nature of these sessions, they are suitable for people living with dementia and their carers.
 
If you would like to come along to a session, please email our Learning & Participation Manager, Sue Pope on education@orchestraoftheswan.org to reserve your place.
