CHAMBER MUSIC CONCERT VI
INSPIRED BY NEW PRODUCTION OF »bianca e falliero«
Chamber music on Sunday mornings has been on offer at Oper Frankfurt for 25 years, with members of the Frankfurt Opern- und Museumsorchester performing sometimes quite unusual programmes.
In real life Rossini and Beethoven only met once, one day in May, in Vienna in 1822. When the Italian composer heard Beethoven’s Eroica for the first time he was overwhelmed by the music and had only one thought: to meet his colleague. Rossini was exuberant, Beethoven rather stiff and terse, just as the you might expect from the usual clichés. It was pleasant, but nothing more. This concert promises a much more exciting meeting of minds: and entertainment – with lots of wit, variety and melancholy overtones.
