Programme Note

The Dresden Philharmonic and its conductor Michael Sanderling join us for a series of three concerts exploring the music of Beethoven with pianist Freddy Kempf.

The first concert opens with Beethoven’s exhilarating Fidelio Overture, a tour de force of orchestral virtuosity, laden with heroic themes and equally heroic music. The orchestra is joined by piano sensation Freddy Kempf, for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3. The piece is a conflict of stormy and turbulent elements, with tender and lyrical passages guided by the piano.

The programme culminates in an equally gallant finale: Beethoven’s major and instantly recognisable Symphony No. 5, cited by many as the most famous piece of Western classical music.

The Dresden Philharmonic performs further Beethoven concerts on Saturday 20 June and Monday 22 June.

Part of the Zurich International Orchestra Series 2014-15
