This all-Beethoven concert gathers together the lesser-known Fourth Symphony − composed while Beethoven was enjoying one of the most peaceful times of his life − with the celebrated Seventh. For this performance, filmed live at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, Vladimir Jurowski collaborates with the musicians of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, who perform on period instruments, shedding a radically different light on works that we are so accustomed to hearing on modern instruments.
