About the Concert

Tickets for this event will be available from 12.06.2024 from 10 am.

With our new "Best of Classical Music" concert format, you can immerse yourself in the most famous works of classical music. We begin with a presentation that briefly introduces the work and provides listening tips. Then you can enjoy the selected symphony in a short concert. Afterwards, you are invited to join us at the bar of the Kulturpalast. Our moderator will be in conversation with the conductor on a small stage in the room. There is no musicology on the agenda - Malte would rather lead us into the personal world of our respective guests. Relax over a glass of wine and listen to exciting insights from the world of classical music.

To the concert:

One of the unsolved mysteries of music history, high tempo and a death motif. All this and more can be found in Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, considered by many to be his most cheerful and positive. No wonder, since the first movement already features dance-like rhythms, and the musicians really go for it in the last movement. Some parts of the first movement are so similar to a Mozart symphony that Beethoven did not even know, that one suspects another model. But which one? That remains a mystery to this day. The slow movement is also mysterious, with a haunting motive that evokes mourning and death. It is not easily forgotten.

Maxim Emelyanychev

"He is dynamic, energetic and exciting to watch, exhilarating for musicians and audiences alike," wrote The Guardian about the Russian conductor Maxim Emelyanchev, who is making his debut with the Dresden Philharmonic. Now in his mid-thirties, he reached the first major European stages in 2013 and went on several international tours with the ensemble Il pomo d'oro and Joyce DiDonato from 2016. He has been Chief Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra since 2019.
