The Aurora Orchestra at the BBC Proms 2015 – Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony

With its signature creative ethos, Aurora Orchestra combines world-class performance with adventurous programming and presentation. In recent years, it has pioneered memorised performance (without the use of printed sheet music), and is thought to be the first orchestra worldwide to perform whole symphonies in this way. Aurora performs Beethoven’s irresistible ode to nature, the Pastoral Symphony, entirely from memory in this exhilarating performance from the 2015 BBC Proms.

Filmed live at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday 2 August 2015.
