fate

June 2023

A grand tour through some of the most prestigious venues in Europe reunites the MCO with both Andris Nelsons and Lang Lang. The program consists of some powerful cornerstones of the Beethovenian repertoire, including the well-known Fate symphony. Beethoven's secretary wrote, after the composer's death, that Beethoven had described this motif and the foundational idea of the entire work as “fate knocking at the door!” This story held for so long, the opening is also called the “Fate motif”.

The MCO has previously collaborated with both Nelsons and Lang through its participation as the core group of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra.
