Herbert Blomstedt conducts Beethoven’s “Eroica”

Contrasting expressive worlds: the inward-looking Metamorphosen, in which the 81-year-old Richard Strauss mourns the destruction of the Second World War, and the forward-charging Eroica of the young Beethoven. A motif from the funeral march of the Eroica, which Strauss quotes, establishes a connection. The wisdom of old age and esprit – Herbert Blomstedt combines them in his charismatic personality.
