Beethoven’s Fifth is a symphony par excellence. An essential work in which we discover new ‎twists, new nuances and new sensations each time we hear it. Kazushi Ono had not yet ‎offered us this symphony, but he now takes advantage of this Beethoven festival to perform ‎it with the OBC. It begins with the four most famous notes in the history of music and ‎accompanies us for half an hour along new musical avenues that only a genius like Beethoven ‎knew how to open.‎

The programme also features a very difficult and moving concert scene for soprano and ‎orchestra, and with the heroic overture inspired by the story of the Roman general ‎Coriolanus. Another highlight of the programme is the Barcelona premiere of the Beethoven-‎inspired work commissioned by the OBC to Hèctor Parra, together with the Cologne ‎Philharmonic Orchestra.‎
