Helsinki Philharmonic - Susanna Mälkki & Karita Mattila

Wed 25/04/2018 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 36.00-7.00 €


Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 was recently voted greatest symphony of all time by BBC Music Magazine.

Beethoven was a man of the people whose third symphony was dedicated to the revolutionary leader Napoleon, who then betrayed his admirers by declaring himself Emperor. Beethoven then rededicated his symphony “to the memory of a great man”. It was recently voted greatest symphony of all time by BBC Music Magazine. Is it a coincidence that the evening’s concert programme also includes Beethoven’s concert aria to a traitor Ah! Perfido?
