The fifth joint project with the Orchestra of the 18th Century is devoted to Beethoven. Precisely 30 years ago this orchestra astonished the world with a sublime and new-sounding performance of the Eroica symphony.
Conductor Philippe Herreweghe has a similar track record in terms of performing 19th century music with historical instruments. The two make a perfect match for this programme!
The soloist on fortepiano, Bobby Mitchell, an alumnus of the Early Music and Classical Music departments of the Royal Conservatoire, is cut from the same cloth. He has grown into a soloist who performs both the early and contemporary repertoire with avant-gardish freshness and individuality. It has been chosen to perform the 7th symphony with a double orchestra because the enormous ensemble will highlight the unique dimension in many moments in Beethoven’s instrumentation. 


This project is supported by the municipality of The Hague and the Adriana Jacoba Fonds.
