    The finale of the Easter@Philharmonie Festival is dedicated entirely to the music of Ludwig van Beethoven, whose works were to be the focus of the Easter Festival in Baden-Baden which was cancelled due to the corona crisis. In addition to newly recorded chamber music works, the programme includes excerpts from Berliner Philharmoniker concerts conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Zubin Mehta and Daniel Barenboim plus the chief conductors Claudio Abbado and Sir Simon Rattle. The online festival closes with a performance of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony with their successor Kirill Petrenko.

  • A Beethoven evening with Nikolaus Harnoncourt

    A Beethoven evening with Nikolaus Harnoncourt

    This Beethoven evening from October 2011 marks Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s final guest appearance with the Berliner Philharmoniker – the end of an exceptionally happy and fruitful collaboration which had begun in 1991. The concert demonstrates the undiminished vitality of this partnership with a rousing interpretation of the Fifth Symphony, which for Simon Rattle amounted to the “effect of a volcanic eruption”.

    Nikolaus Harnoncourt conducts Haydn’s “Orlando paladino”

    Nikolaus Harnoncourt called Haydn’s Orlando paladino a “totally mad, modern opera” and praised the “combination of pathos and irony, of real feelings and completely overwrought wooing”, which is “carried to extremes in Haydn’s inspired interpretation”. In this recording from 2009, Harnoncourt conducts the work with an outstanding ensemble of soloists, headed by Jane Archibald, Jonathan Lemalu, Kurt Streit and Michelle Breedt.
