• Beethoven: Septet in Eb, Op. 20 (arr. Czerny, 1805)
Beethoven’s Septet Op. 20 was Beethoven’s most popular chamber work – so much so, that Beethoven later remarked that he wished it had been burned. University of Huddersfield Ensemble in Association Boxwood & Brass present it in an 1805 arrangement for Beethoven’s student Carl Czerny. Czerny’s ambitious re-working, never before performed in its entirety, combines virtuosity with the myriad colours of period wind instruments.
Hosted by the ReCePP Nineteenth Century Performance Research Group.

Sir Patrick Stewart Building, Studio 2
A tale of deceit, sacrifice, betrayal, revenge, matricide and “justice”. First year drama students present an adaptation of four classical Greek plays dealing with the fates of Agamemnon, Clytemnestra and their children.
The drama of Ancient Greece is at the root of European theatre and the plays we will be looking at have been translated, adapted, and staged over a period of 2500 years. We have been working with translations from a hundred years ago to make them closer to us whilst also preserving some of their strangeness and charm.
The performance will run for approximately 80 minutes without an interval.
