Berliner Philharmoniker

Herbert Blomstedt conducts Schubert and Beethoven


Herbert-von-Karajan-Str. 1, 10785 Berlin


Herbert Blomstedt’s guiding principle is “to conduct fewer works, but to work on them thoroughly”. This self-restraint alone invariably makes his interpretations an event. Blomstedt is one of the long-standing artistic friends of the Berliner Philharmoniker, and at this concert he conducts a composer who has never been heard during this partnership: Franz Schubert, who composed his Third Symphony at the age of 18. Beethoven’s Seventh, which is also on the programme, was written two years earlier. What unites Schubert’s early work and the symphony of the mature Beethoven? Their optimistic, graceful and rousing spirit.
