Info for Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C Minor, Op. 67
“Extremes and superlatives reigned in the Great Hall of the Mozarteum” (Der Tagesspiegel). Critics were left gasping for breath, or at least adjectives, after Teodor Currentzis and his orchestra musicAeterna performed a complete cycle of Beethoven’s symphonies at the 2018 Salzburg Festival. Demand for tickets vastly outstripped supply, much as it did when the ensemble made its debut at the BBC Proms in London later in July under its founder-director, Teodor Currentzis. That night they performed the Second and Fifth Symphonies to more glowing reviews. “Playing of an intensity that makes the music seem somehow Beethoven-plus; more Beethoven than ever before.” (The Guardian)
Directly after the Prom, musicAeterna and Teodor Currentzis travelled to Vienna, where they recorded the Fifth and Seventh Symphonies at the Konzerthaus over the course of a week. Sony Classical now presents the recordings as a defining contribution to the celebrations marking Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. These two masterworks will be released separately. For Currentzis each symphony is similar to a novel, and two novels would never be combined into one book.
Teodor Currentzis, conductor
one of the most in demand Russian orchestras in the fi eld of period performance, also working successfully with 20th century music. Founded in Novosibirsk in 2004 by Teodor Currentzis.
The orchestra has performed with Currentzis in Vienna, Amsterdam, London, Baden-Baden, Moscow, Saint Petersburg and Perm. In February 2014 the orchestra, together with musicAeterna Chorus, went on a tour of major stages in Berlin, Paris, Lisbon and Athens.
The orchestra has signed an exclusive contract with Sony Classical to record Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro (released in February 2014, received the German Record Critics' Award 'Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik') and Cosi fan tutte (there are also plans to record Don Giovanni), Stravinsky's Les Noces and Le Sacre du printemps, and a disc of music by Jean-Philippe Rameau. Tchaikovsky's Concerto for Violin and Orchestrais to be released soon. Between 2008 and 2010 the orchestra released three discs on the Alpha label: Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 14 and Mozart's Requiem.
Artistic Director of Choir MusicAeterna — Teodor Currentzis. Principal choirmaster — Vitaly Polonsky. The fi rst presentation of the chorus in its current complement took place in Perm in 2011. The repertoire of the chorus, essentially performed in the authentic manner, embraces different styles and historical periods.
The concert programmes of the ensemble include the works of the foreign baroque composers, the masterpieces of the Russian choral music of the 18th — 20th centuries and contemporary pieces. In February 2014 the chorus, together with the orchestra musicAeterna, had a triumphant series of performances in Berlin, Paris, Lisbon and Athens with a concert version of Purcell's Dido and Aeneas and Handel's psalm Dixit Dominus.
