Vienna Tonküstler Orchestra at Colston Hall


For those admirers braving the freezing cold of Vienna’s Theater an der Wien on 22 Dec 1808 the prospect of an all-Beethoven ‘Akademie’ must have felt like Christmas come early – and what a present! As well as the premieres of Symphonies 5 & 6, the Piano Concerto No. 4 and the Choral Fantasia, other ‘sundries’ included a sizeable slab of the Mass in C and the dramatic concert aria Ah perfido.

Under its young Columbian maestro Andres Orozco-Estrada – and recalling Barry Douglas to the Colston Hall stage – the Tonkünstler Orchestra returns to recreate a part of that monumental evening as the two strongly-contrasted symphonies go head to head – separated by a concerto whose opening is nothing short of a ‘velvet revolution’.
