An event of the Staatsoper Unter den Linden in cooperation with the Berliner Festspiele

Finally, the musikfest berlin will close with the work of Charles Ives and the seldom-heard Robert Browning Overture, an expansive symphonic poem inspired by the lofty works of the high-flying British poet of ideas Robert Browning. The other two pieces included in the programme both illustrate in their own manner the triumph of rhythm over all other aspects of music. Bartók pushes energetically forwards, whereas Beethoven is defined by an elementary, compelling force. Daniel Barenboim performs as soloist and thus clears the stand of “his” orchestra to make way for the young Gustavo Dudamel. Dudamel’s lively take on Beethoven with the Venezuela Youth Orchestra caused a sensation which was met with great enthusiasm the world over.
