About the Concert

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

Even a single note makes a lot of music. But can you create an entire symphony from just two notes? And if so, how do you do it? Beethoven did it in a fascinating way in his "Fifth", as if you were building a whole house out of just two Lego bricks. Together with the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra, Malte will reveal a few secrets about the music: Is it really a "Symphony of Destiny"? Who keeps knocking on the door? Why are some of the musicians arriving so late? And where is Phili anyway? Many questions that urgently need to be answered this morning.
