HAUSFESTSPIEL: Widmann, Berlioz, and Beethoven

Véronique Gens, Antonello Manacorda, and members of the SWR Symphonieorchester

Description Program Artists Related articles

Rhythm, dance, and dreams: Beethoven's Seventh and the Nuits d´été each leave “classical” rationality behind in their own way. Jörg Widmann pays homage to Beethoven in his virtuoso concert overture – a wonderful opportunity for the musicians of the SWR Symphonieorchester under Antonello Manacorda to show their virtuosity.
