This international Beethoven celebration, directed by Richard Tognetti, features ANAM Faculty and musicians in a true concert spectacular, in which the ANAM forces are, collectively, first among equals.
The orchestra on stage will also include performers from ANAM’s partner institutions around the world, including the Bavarian State Opera Orchestra Academy (Munich), Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra Academy (Berlin), Colburn School (Los Angeles), Guildhall School of Music and Drama (London) and Sibelius Academy (Helsinki).
In keeping with the festive spirit of the occasion, this unique performance 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.
