Beethoven in Frankfurt - livestream

The “Ludwig van ...” project begins today. Through this season's project, principal conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony invite listeners to intensively engage with Beethoven's music. At the heart of this project is a somewhat unusual symphonic cycle performed in Frankfurt's Alte Oper. Two different Beethoven symphonies will be presented each night over the course of four concerts enriched by interesting pianistic counterpoints and further Beethoven contributions. Divided into two groups, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony is rehearsing the symphonies in parallel formations. Both groups will perform in each of the Thursday and Friday concerts, so all members of the orchestra are involved in this project. In the first “Ludwig van ...” double programme, Andrés Orozco-Estrada and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony will present the First and Third Symphonies in concert on 11th February and the Fourth and Fifth Symphonies on 12th February. As a complete contrast of tone and style, the exceptional French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard will on each occasion perform a piece for piano by Karlheinz Stockhausen, finishing with the impressive sound of Beethoven’s Eroica Variations and the Appassionata on each respective evening.
