The Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, a prince among Europe’s orchestras, is a veritable institution that has garnered multiple awards for one of the most extensive discographies of our time. For this exclusive North American engagement, the famous German phalanx offers us a kaleidoscopic and panoramic survey of Beethoven’s universe through his symphonies, including the eternal Fifth, as well as through the music of some of the Bonn master’s contemporaries and precursors. Three fascinating concerts of discovery that will shed new light on one of the greatest musical geniuses of all time.
