In December 1808, Beethoven gave a mammoth concert in Vienna at which all the pieces in tonight’s programme were first performed, plus parts of his Mass in C, making “arguably the most momentous concert in history” The Guardian. We mark the 250th anniversary of his birth with this special recreation.
