Information about the programme

A Beethoven festival with Iván Fischer! This Hungarian conductor has acquired international fame for his readings of the classical-romantic repertoire and makes guest appearances with all the great orchestras. His BRSO programme features the Eighth Symphony, full of merriment and understated humour, and the Fifth, where Fate knocks at the door and the almost martial finale seems to find the composer “grabbing destiny by the throat”. Between these two mutually contradictory masterpieces is the revenge aria Ah! Perfido!, to words by Pietro Metastasio. The soprano is Christiane Karg.
