However, when Napoleon crowned himself emperor of France, Beethoven scratched out his name on the title page of the manuscript so furiously, that he left holes in the paper. Regardless, the revolutionary ideals can still be heard in this symphony. As they can be in Variaciones Concertantes by Ginastera, who opposed the regime of dictator Juan Domingo Peron. Conducted by the Swiss-Australian Elena Schwarz, a true world traveller whose international fame rises like a rocket. She takes you to South America with the colourful orchestral music of Heitor Villa-Lobos, who makes a tribute to Bach, Brazilian style.
To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
