The Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, which wowed the overflowing audience at their last Library appearance with a performance of all of J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg concerti, returns with an intense 250th birthday tribute to Beethoven. This time they bring their friends—Kristian Bezuidenhout at the fortepiano and Isabelle Faust on violin—to perform a selection of works drawn from an immensely fruitful period in his life, between 1798 and 1806. In addition to two of his most-loved concerti, we will also hear the lovely Romanze in F major, the manuscript of which resides at the Library.

BEETHOVEN

Overture to Die Geschöpfe des Prometheus, op. 43
