Never miss a good opportunity: Beethoven’s works are well worth listening to even after his jubilee year! And to celebrate the orchestra’s 70th birthday we will be spirited away twice to the 1950s – to famous film scores and the loveliest melodies of the era. We begin by introducing our artist-in-residence, Croatian pianist Dejan Lazić. Typical Wednesday concerts with music that entertains, fascinates – and goes under the skin!

Incidental music for Goethe’s play
Wednesday, 12 January 2022, 7:30 pm
Für Elise and Ode to Joy: Beethoven’s music is nothing if not popular. Yet although everyone knows it, there are always new things to discover. Now the Munich Radio Orchestra presents an “All-Egmont Concert” featuring his complete incidental music to Goethe’s play, along with a narration of the text: “How my heart pounds, how my blood surges!” A perfect setting for Goethe, the prince of poets, who conceived his play with music from the very beginning – and was ideally rewarded for it by Beethoven!
Radio music from the 1950s

It was the age of the solemnly glowing vacuum-tube receiver with its mysterious green “magic eye”. One switched it on and heard music – perhaps from the newly founded Munich Radio Orchestra, which presented itself with swinging sounds in polished acoustics. They played everything people whistled in the 1950s: musicals and medleys, film scores and peppy dance tunes. Listen to the loveliest melodies of Franz Grothe, Leonard Bernstein, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin and Richard Rodgers – “melodies that everyone’s glad to hear”.
Unforgotten movie melodies from the 1950s

Bucolic idyll and rebellion: an era of contradictions conquered the movie screens of the Fifties with a wealth of images. No less varied were the era’s sound tracks. But they always had one goal in mind: to instil the extra excitement of orchestral sound into the steamy pathos and high-flown emotions of the imagery. Where else can we find Black Forest damsels and hot-blooded brigands if not with the Munich Radio Orchestra!
