Taster of the Beethoven Anniversary Year

The NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra under Alan Gilbert perform Beethoven, Poppe and Widmann.

Video available until 24 Dec 2019

When Alan Gilbert takes up his position as its new principal conductor, the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra marks the occasion with three intensive weeks full of music. With six exciting and many-faceted programmes, Gilbert forges links between tradition and modernity, between the Old and the New World, between musicians and the audience. In anticipation of the Beethoven anniversary year 2020, works by Beethoven are combined here with contemporary pieces by Jörg Widmann and Enno Poppe. In Poppe's Violin Concerto, which was specially commissioned by the Beethoven Festival in Bonn and the NDR to mark the Beethoven anniversary year, Carrolin Widmann plays the solo part.
