Kodály Philharmonia – Beethoven 250 – III. Concert
February 11, 2020 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
This year marks the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth. In honour of the 250th anniversary of the world-famous pianist, the Kodály Philharmonia Debrecen plays all the symphonies of the great classical master throughout the 2019-2020 season.
Beethoven composed his Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61, in 1806. Once Franz Clement presented it, it was seen unsuccessful and ridiculous for some decades. In 1844 by Joseph Joachim revived it and since then it has become one of the best-known violin concertos.
The Symphony No. 6 in F Major, “Pastorale”, Op. 68th was completed in 1808. It contains explicitly programmatic content and it was first performed in the Theater an der Wien on 22 December 1808 in a four-hour concert.
