«All storminess, all yearning and raging of the heart becomes here the blissful high spirits of joy, which with bacchanalian omnipotence sweeps us through all the spaces of nature, through all the rivers and seas of life, confidently exulting everywhere where we step, in the bold rhythms of this human dance of the spheres»: The rapturous words are Richard Wagner’s response to Ludwig van Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony. An «apotheosis of dance» – or a joyous celebration to mark the victory over Napoleon? Let’s discover the musical and perhaps also political facets of this magnificent work – unveiled by the Tonkunstler Orchestra, Michele Mariotti on the podium and presenter Albert Hosp!
