Concert information



Beethoven’s dramatic and heroic Egmont Overture is well-known and much loved. However, very few listeners know the extensive incidental music that Beethoven also wrote Goethe’s drama Egmont. Gustavo Dudamel gives us the opportunity to hear how vividly the composer depicts the fate of the Dutch prince Egmont in music: his triumphs, his love, his failure. Fate also plays a central role in Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, symbolised by a relentless motif that runs through the entire work. The composer uses it to mirror his own struggles with himself and the world – passionately, stirringly, movingly.
