About

Discover the world premiere of Gerald Barry’s Canada, commissioned by the BBC and performed by the Birmingham Symphony Orchestra under the baton of renowned conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla! This concert celebrates political and artistic freedom: Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3 celebrates the triumph of truth over tyranny, whilst his immortal Fifth Symphony rewrites the rules of the classical symphony; and Gerald Barry’s work draws its inspiration from Canadian history and its revolutionary movements.
