This international celebration of Beethoven’s life and music, directed by Richard Tognetti, features musicians from all across the globe in a true concert spectacular.
- The orchestra will include performers from ANAM’s partner institutions: the Orchestra Academy of Bayerisches Staatsorchester (Munich), Colburn School (Los Angeles), Guildhall School of Music and Drama (London), Karajan Academy of the Berliner Philharmoniker (Berlin) and the Sibelius Academy (Helsinki)
- In keeping with the festive spirit of the occasion, this unique celebration will include one of Beethoven’s symphonic masterpieces – in fact one of the greatest works of Western culture in any medium – the Fifth Symphony, which takes you on an eternally compelling journey from darkness to light
- The concert also includes a surprising and beautiful transformation of Beethoven’s last major work, his String Quartet no. 16, and – to demonstrate what the word ‘celebration’ really means – the nine-minute mash-up by Louis Andriessen that can only be described as a musical party.
