Side by Side
40 talented musicians from the Early Music department of the Royal Conservatoire and 40 musicians from the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century join forces. Side by side and under the direction of the famous conductor Sir Roger Norrington this double orchestra plays 2 symphonic masterpieces by Franz Schubert: his 'Unfinished' Symphony No. 7 and his 'Great' Symphony No. 8.

The Early Music Department of the Royal Conservatoire and the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century are figureheads of historical performance practice. For the 6th year in a row, the professionals are transferring their expertise to a new generation of musicians, resulting in a series of memorable concerts.

Sir Roger Norrington and the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century
In 1978, a time when the general public was only just getting used to the idea of Baroque music being played mainly on historical instruments, Sir Roger Norrington set his sights on the 19th century. He encountered opposition and scorn from the modern orchestras. Now, 40 years later, he has been proved right as they have adopted many of his insights and ideas.

It is therefore all the more exciting to discover what can be done with Schubert’s two final symphonies in the hands of the mature spirit of Norrington in a dialogue with the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century. They will be accompanied by a generation that has come to take the sound of the 19th century for granted. According to Norrington, music is about gesture, colour, form and emotional intensity. That certainly applies for Schubert’s monumental symphonic masterpieces, which force musicians to explore the magical effect of the music with renewed curiosity every time.
