There is still time to catch the last week of the three-week Modern Beethoven Festival which already began on March 1st and continues until March 20th.
Conductor and Beethoven expert David Zinman will lead the New York Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall in a wonderful way which promises to give audiences the feeling that they are hearing this music for the very first time.
Zinman is a native New Yorker and the chief conductor of the Tonhalle Orchestra of Zurich. He recorded “Beethoven: The Nine Symphonies” in 1999 before which time he spent ten years imagining what Beethoven’s music should really sound like, researching how performances were actually conducted at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries.
Each symphony will feature one of the following soloists: Peter Serkin, Alisa Weilerstein or Gil Shaham. For more information visit NYC-ARTS.
