Taste is a negative thing. Genius affirms and always affirms.

Wiener Symphoniker
Conductor: Philippe Jordan

Beethoven symphonies performed by a Viennese orchestra. This always promises to be an authentic experience, a one-of-a-kind event, and in this concert in Budapest the Wiener Symphoniker is directed by one of the most sought-after and exciting conductors of our time. Swiss Philippe Jordan, who is slated to take over the post of chief music director of the Vienna Staatsoper from next season, has wielded the baton at Wiener Symphoniker since 2014, and it was under his watch that the ensemble began the first Beethoven recording cycle in their history, of which we are only waiting for the ninth symphony to be published. With regard to these recordings, the critics have had much to praise in Jordan’s dynamic, profoundly considered yet still spontaneous play, which offers listeners a Beethoven experience of the very highest order. So, our Liszt Academy audience can look forward to this as well: the far from everyday performance of the fifth and six symphonies, with the bonus of meeting a great conductor.

 

 

The concert is followed by CODA – which is an informal conversation with the performers.
