The symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven are proof of the genius of this unscrupulous revolutionary composer breaking genre conventions and uncompromisingly seeking his own ways. The February concert formula will be equally unusual, unconventional and intriguing.

Each of Beethoven's nine symphonies is completely different from the others, and in each of them the composer expresses something radically new, expands the form and expression. It was Beethoven's example that so many composers followed, introducing into their works instruments that are now standard equipment of orchestras, such as the piccolo flute, trombone or counter-bassoon. To this day, the Viennese symphonies enjoy enormous popularity and are performed all over the world.

The concert with fragments of Beethoven's symphonies will be the culmination of a conductors’ workshop run by the Belgian conductor Jos van Immerseel, who will introduce the conducting undergraduates to the secrets hidden in the scores of the author of the Pastoral Symphony. The performers will present to the public the results of their research presenting what they have found in this music.

The concert will be hosted by the artistic director of Wrocław Baroque Orchestra, Jarosław Thiel. It will be a unique combination of full of engaging narrative, contemporary multimedia and interaction with listeners. The audience will also have an opportunity to participate in the presentation of historical pianos. Not only will musicians from the orchestra perform short fragments of sonatas, but also volunteers from the audience will be invited to try the instruments. Finally, all gathered together will sing the Ode to Joy from the Ninth Symphony, one of the most known and recognizable motifs in Beethoven’s work.
