Music full of spirit, just right for spring: Beethoven in the great outdoors

“Weil and [Tafelmusik] players convince us that Beethoven can sound as radical in the 21st century as he must have done in the 19th.” – Gramophone

Spring is in the air and invites a performance of Beethoven’s "Pastoral" Symphony No. 6. Throw open your windows and take a deep breath as his music leads you into the countryside. There may be storms, but amid country folk, shepherds, and babbling streams he offers refreshment for the soul—a perfect paring with Elisa Citterio’s much-anticipated performance of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, one of the world’s best-known and best-loved concertos.

Long-time Tafelmusik collaborator Bruno Weil returns to conduct the orchestra alongside Jeanne Lamon as concertmaster. Tafelmusik’s fresh interpretations of Beethoven are critically acclaimed, so what is Maestro Weil’s secret? “Everybody’s playing with a full heart and a full soul and spirit.”
