Rathausmarkt Open Air

Kent Nagano

Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 2 B flat major op. 19

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: Symphony No. 5 in D minor op. 107 - "Reformation Symphony"

Kent Nagano
pianist: Mari Kodama
Philharmonisches Staatsorchester Hamburg

There's no question that the annual open-air concert at the Rathausmarkt, a gift from the Philharmonic State Orchestra to its loyal audience, is one of the city's most popular classical music events. Chief conductor Kent Nagano provides exhilarating evenings in the open air in late summer. This year, it is possible to experience from where Ludwig van Beethoven, the later revolutionary of all music to date, started: his second piano concerto is, strictly chronologically speaking, actually his first; here he is still close to his predecessors Haydn and Mozart. The pianist Mari Kodama plays the solo part, which, in view of the composer's name, is not surprising, and contains many a harmonic surprise. Afterwards, the Philharmonic State Orchestra under Kent Nagano's direction will play Mendelssohn's Reformation Symphony, which the Hamburg native put to paper in his early 20s.
"To start the season in the middle of the city together with the people of Hamburg gives our orchestra and the team a wonderful wave of positive energy - an absolute highlight of the season in a dream setting."
Barbara Fasching, Orchestra Director

Venue: Rathausmarkt, 20095 Hamburg
