Marios Papadopoulos conductor

In his symphony No. 8, Antonin Dvořák captured his delight to be alive – his sheer enchantment in the face of existence. Surely the most blissful symphony the Czech composer wrote, it is a work overflowing with joyous fanfares and the beauty of the natural world. In the atmospheric surroundings of Oxford’s own Sheldonian Theatre, Marios Papadopoulos conducts the symphony here after music from the first Viennese School, featuring the Orchestra’s outstanding principal wind players, that doesn’t so much revel in happiness as appear to touch the heavens.

The Sheldonian Theatre is a unique space to experience live music. To see an interactive map of the theatre click here.
