You’ve never heard Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony quite like this!

The Aurora Orchestra, conductor Nicholas Collon and presenter Tom Service are your guides as they take apart this revolutionary symphony – with its famous four-note opening – revealing the many questions it raises, as well as a few answers, before performing the entire work from memory.

_BBC Proms relaxed performances are designed to suit individuals or groups who feel more comfortable attending concerts in a relaxed environment. There is a relaxed attitude to noise and audience-members are free to leave and re-enter the auditorium at any point. There will be chill-out areas, where spaces are made for anyone needing a bit of quiet time before or during the performance. For full details, visit
