Beethoven 2020 | Series ORIGINAL SOUND
This concert’s program unites the two core themes of the 2020 Festival. Taking up the motto »Inspiration Nature«, the musicians celebrate Beethoven’s 250th anniversary with the performance of two ground-breaking symphonic works: the famous »Symphony of Fate«, whose sound has been circling the earth in space as a golden record since 1977, and the »Pastoral«, in which Beethoven set to music the feelings stirred by experiences in nature. Thus, the Dresden Music Festival continues its artistic statement as part of the »Beethoven Pastoral Project« initiated by the Beethoven Anniversary Society and the United Nations, which calls for multi-faceted exploration and debate of Beethoven’s Sixth as its point of departure – an initiative which culminates in the »Pastoral Day« on this World Environment Day.
