Saraste Conducts Beethoven 7

Saraste Conducts Beethoven 7


Beethoven fondly spoke of his ebullient and inventive Seventh Symphony as his “most excellent.”

Critics hated it.

One sniped that Beethoven must have composed it while drunk; another called him “ripe for the madhouse.” Composed five years later, Schubert’s Sixth Symphony wears its Beethovenian heart proudly on its sleeve while speaking a language all its own. Jukka-Pekka Saraste will conduct both.
