Bon Voyage

The London Symphony Orchestra (LSO), one of the bes t in the world, has had a close connection with the Beethovenfest Bonn for many years. At the 2014 opening concert, it will be conducted by Sir John Eliot Gardiner, who was last in Bonn with the LSO in 2011. Gardiner was one of the pioneers of historically informed performance practice, and stands for a lively confrontation with the classical and early-Romantic repertoire. Following on from his magnificent concerts in 2011, the celebrated conductor has chosen to focus on one of Beethoven’s most important successors, the early-Romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, whose works will be coupled with Robert Schumann’s Cello Concerto in a performance by Gautier Capuçon.
