    Beethoven up Close

    Last September in the National Concert Hall, the BBC broadcaster Charles Hazlewood accompanied by the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, previewed Beethoven symphonic highlights from the current NCH International Concert Series and the RTÉ NSO’s season. In “Beethoven Close Up” audiences heard his unique insights into and interpretations of Symphonies No. 1, 5, 6 and 7. His performances of classical music shake up the traditional settings of the form, blending film or sculpture into a piece or engaging in a conversation with the audience to expose the deep, evolving joy of orchestral music.
