BEETHOVEN: Riccardo Chailly – all is revealed


"Riccardo Chailly’s view of the Beethoven symphonies has been a well-kept secret, but now in a single well-coordinated gesture all is revealed. At concerts in Vienna’s Musikverein, Paris’s Salle Pleyel and London’s Barbican, Chailly and his Leipzig Gewandhausorchester will present all nine symphonies alongside five specially commissioned works that reflect their individual composer’s attitude to Beethoven’s symphonies. The composers – drawn from different European countries – are Carlo Boccadero, Friedrich Cerha, Bruno Mantovani, Colin Matthews and Steffan Schleiermacher, and each concert will feature one of their works"
