Over the course of two decades, it has not only become an internationally celebrated orchestra but an important symbol for the peaceful co-existence of different cultures. The work of the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra eventually led to the formation in 2015 of the Barenboim-Said Akademie and of the Pierre Boulez Saal, which opened two years later. The three institutions have since been united in their mission to let music be a messenger of humanism and transcultural understanding.  

But the 2019 Waldbühne Concert also marks another anniversary—serving as a prelude to the Beethoven Year 2020, in which the music world will celebrate the composer’s 250th birthday. The program, performed in a breathtaking outdoor setting, is entirely dedicated to the music of Beethoven: with the composer’s Violin Concerto, featuring Michael Barenboim as the soloist, and his Seventh Symphony.

Ludwig van Beethoven - Ouverture zu «Egmont» op. 84
