Nothing Beats Beethoven
A special occasion: Maestro Richard Egarr’s first concert in his role as our principal guest conductor. For this performance, Egarr – Beethoven interpreter par excellence – takes the heroic Symphony No. 3 to his music stand. The composer dedicated the work, which was to go down in history as the first true piece of Romantic music, to his great hero Napoleon, a gesture that he later cancelled out with one angry pen stroke.
“Conductor Richard Egarr tickled the orchestra members with energetic, unruly Beethoven” – VOLKSKRANT
A complete evening!
Tickets include wardrobe, coffee/tea and a drink during the intermission.
