A grand festival finale with world star Christian Tetzlaff as the soloist, and Beethoven’s spirited Seventh Symphony performed by the Chamber Orchestra of Europe – an apotheosis of dance.

There is surely no orchestra as closely associated with Beethoven’s symphonies as the Chamber Orchestra of Europe since it released a revolutionary complete recording under Nikolaus Harnoncourt twenty years ago. They now perform the eruptively joyful Seventh Symphony under the British conductor Robin Ticciati. The global violin star Christian Tetzlaff plays Robert Schumann’s dramatic Violin Concerto, which was written just a year before the composer was committed to the psychiatric hospital in Bonn-Endenich.
