We know and revere it as a cultural symbol of unparalleled importance. Radical for its time, premiered in Vienna on May 7, 1824, later fixed in the standard repertoire by Richard Wagner at the 1876 inauguration of the Bayreuth Festival, Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is the score prepared for the most anticipated event of the fall, the opening of the 2022-2023 season.
At the Philharmonic, we are kicking off an exciting series of classical music concerts, anchoring ourselves in traditional repertoires, and Beethoven’s ninth symphony is the perfect expression of the emotions of this beginning. The symphony orchestra and the academic choir, maestro Gheorghe Costin and the conductor of the academic choir, Robert Daniel Rădoiaș, invite you, on Thursday evening, October 6, 2022, at 7 p.m., to the long-awaited “Ode to joy”, a score with a universal destiny, in which each generation and each culture finds itself and mirrors its aspirations.
We are therefore ready for one of the most promising meetings of October, where we will be joined by soprano Narcisa Brumar, mezzo-soprano Mihaela Ișpan, tenor Cristian Mogoșan and bass Cristian Hodrea – soloists of the National Operas of Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Timișoara .
Dear music lovers, we all imagine a season for your pleasure, and for this, we hope you will come, listen to us and above all, enjoy!
