To mark the 250th anniversary of his birth, the NZSO presents a unique concert guiding you through the music of Beethoven and composers he subsequently inspired. Realising Beethoven features works from the great composer himself, such as his dramatic Egmont Overture, as well as movements from his great symphonies alongside Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman Overture, Berlioz’ Beatrice et Benedict Overture and works by other celebrated composers who admired Beethoven’s phenomenal talents.  The journey through this magical performance will be narrated by NZSO players, telling stories and offering insights for audiences old and new.
