About the programme

Für Elise and Ode to Joy – Beethoven’s music is popular, everybody recognizes it, and yet there is always something new to discover. For the anniversary year 2020, in which the music world will celebrate the 250th birthday of the Viennese classic, the Munich Radio Orchestra will present an Egmont evening, which will offer all the incidental music and recitation of the text from the play: “How my heart hammers, how my blood courses!” A dramatic presentation by the prince of poets, Goethe, who from the very beginning conceived this play with a place for music – and got the best conceivable: by Beethoven!

About the performers

John Fiore is a frequent guest conductor of the Munich Radio Orchestra, and widely respected as an expert for operatic repertoire and the Classical period. Who could make Beethoven’s Egmont incidental music sound better than the native New Yorker, especially with Regula Mühlemann, whose singing has earned her international acclaim? The Austrian actor Hans Sigl, who is known from many TV productions (among others, Der Bergdoktor) is the narrator.
