About the Concert

The sale of tickets for these and other events, as well as the sale of elective subscriptions for the upcoming season, will begin on June 21.

Against Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, "every rock number is like a lame duck" (Karl-Heinz Ott in his book about Beethoven's symphonies). That sounds exaggerated? Perhaps, but the music is indeed full of energy, power and emotion. This was already felt by the audience at the premiere in Vienna in 1813, which virtually cheered with enthusiasm. Beethoven did not have an extra-musical program for this symphony, as he did for his Sixth (Nature) or Fifth (Fate), but there is no need for one. Our Principal Guest Conductor, Kahchun Wong, who comes from Singapore, loves the work precisely because of its openness and will certainly conduct it in a rousing manner in our short concert with the Dresden Philharmonic.

In May 2022, Singaporean conductor Kahchun Wong was appointed Chief Conductor of the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra for an initial five-year term, beginning in September 2023. Praised by Musical America for the “depth and sincerity of his musicality,” he first came to international attention as the winner of the Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition in 2016. Previously, he was Chief Conductor of the Nuremburg from 2018 to 2022.
