Klaus Mäkelä dirigeert Beethoven bij het Concertgebouworkest
The Concertgebouw Orchestra shows its classical-romantic roots with Beethoven's grandiose Third Symphony, 'Eroica', and works by no fewer than two Mendelssohns, conducted by Klaus Mäkelä.
Klaus Mäkel�� and Beethoven
Klaus Mäkelä has already proven himself as an excellent Beethoven conductor and is now focusing on his Third Symphony , 'Eroica'. Beethoven wrote history with this work. It broke all conventions and became a true monument of the orchestral repertoire. In addition, Felix Mendelssohn's beloved Overture 'Die Hebrides' and the rarely performed concert aria Infélice will be performed.
The soloist is the excellent soprano Chen Reiss, who has already been a guest with the Concertgebouw Orchestra twice. She also sings in the 'dramatic scene' Hero und Leander by Fanny Hensel-Mendelssohn, who recently posthumously emerged from the shadow of her famous brother Felix. The Concertgebouw Orchestra has never even played her work before. Time to take note of her lush compositional style. 'We wanted works by Felix and Fanny Mendelssohn to form one composition,' says Klaus Mäkelä.
