Beethoven | Eötvös

How can one hear and experience Beethoven’s music anew today? François-Xavier Roth selects the composition »Seven« by the Hungarian composer Peter Eötvös as a counterpoint to Beethoven’s »Pastorale«. »Seven« commemorates the seven astronauts of the spaceship »Columbia«. An intensive monologue by the solo violin resounds throughout the entire hall, where it is answered and continued by six violins. Akiko Suwanai shines as the soloist in Peter Eötvös’s violin concerto. A concert about nature, humanity and mankind’s dreams.
