Le Concert des Nations will revive the Third and Fifth Symphonies with period-appropriate techniques and instruments so you can experience it how it was written.
Jordi Savall is one of the big names in classical music today, having spent most of his career seeking out original sounds in the most well-known compositions. To inaugurate the Old Music Series, he will conduct the orchestra he founded, Le Concert des Nations, breathing new life, through period-appropriate techniques and instruments, into two iconic pieces by Beethoven: Symphony No. 3 in E Flat major, op. 55 “Eroica” and Symphony No. 5 in C minor, op. 67. This is part of the conductor’s project celebrating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth by playing some of his most important symphonies. Savall is revisiting Eroica, for example, 25 years after recording his own rendition full of contrasts that uncompromisingly explores the innovative and dramatic nature of the score. This is just one of the reasons this night is a not-to-be-missed musical event: both history-making and intimate; revolutionary and current.
The concert “Beethoven: Symphonies 3 and 5” will be held on 10 October at 8 pm in the main hall of L’Auditori. In addition to Le Concert des Nations, the concert will feature Jakob Lehmann as the concertmaster, Luca Guglielmi as assistant conductor, and Mangredo Kraemer as associate concertmaster.
Tickets cost between €12 and €75, depending on the seat. You can get them on the L’Auditori website.
