A prince among European orchestras at the pinnacle of international renown, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin has received multiple awards for one of the largest discographies of our time. This celebrated musical phalanx from Germany invites audiences on an extraordinary journey to the world of Beethoven. For their only concerts of the season in North America, the ensemble presents the Bonn master’s complete cycle of symphonies, which, of course, includes the timeless Fifth, as well as the music of his contemporaries and forerunners.
