Eschembach conducts Beethoven's 9th


This is a live stream on medici.tv of Christoph Eschenbach's final concert as music director of the National Symphony Orchestra.


Program

  • Bright Sheng, Concerto for Orchestra, "Zodiac Tales"
  • Ludwig van Beethoven, Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, Op. 125

Soloists:
Leah Crocetto Soprano
J'Nai Bridges Mezzo-soprano
Joseph Kaiser Tenor
Soloman Howard Bass

We need Beethoven more than ever.  He was a great soul who told us to walk our paths with joy.  We send a kiss to the whole world.  It always gives me great joy.  Eschenbach is an excellent conductor.  I don't know if a replacement is announced.

The concert can be viewed in delay.
