Beethoven MarathonMain events 2017, Classical music and Opera
03/12/2017 - 03/15/2017

Every now and again, an event comes along that impresses with its ambition and, at the same time, its simplicity. Such is the case with this feast of classical music, which sees distinguished conductor Gustavo Dudamel and his Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar return to the beautiful Palau de la Música Catalana to perform over four days all nine of Beethoven's completed symphonies (there is a tenth, assembled in 1988 by Barry Cooper from fragments left by the composer). Written between 1801 and 1824, the works trace the development of the German musician's style and technique, with the first symphony featuring clear influences from predecessors such as Haydn and Mozart, followed by the gradual establishment of Beethoven's accomplishments in his own right and culminating in one of the most famous classical compositions of all time, Beethoven's Ninth. This is a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in historical musical heritage courtesy of one of the world's top orchestras.

"One of the greatest orchestras performing works by one of the greatest composers? A unique opportunity to immerse yourself in this UNESO World Heritage Site with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra."
