Chamber Orchestra Concert—Sort of Best Friends

Stadtcasino Basel
Friday, 27 May

Today, Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 is one of the most popular pieces of classical music, but at the premiere, it fell through with the audience. How can one listen to such a well-known work as if hearing it for the first time?
Hardly any piece of music has had as much written about it as Beethoven's Fifth and its first four notes, the most famous motif in Western music history. The conductor Sergiu Celibidache once expressed the wish to be able to hear the great works of classical symphony again as if for the first time. The interpretation of Beethoven's Fifth as well as his Triple Concerto for Piano, Violin, and Cello by the Basler Kammerorchester (Basel Chamber Orchestra) under the direction of Giovanni Antonini and with soloists Isabelle Faust (violin), Sol Gabetta (cello), and Kristian Bezuidenhout (piano) offers this opportunity and provides a rewarding, refreshing, and enjoyable experience.
Tickets are CHF 38-105 and half price for students.
