Complete Beethoven SymphoniesBeethoven Cycle

Crowdfunding Video-Documentation «Beethoven's Symphonies»

On December 1st 2022 we launched our Beethoven cycle. Until our 20th anniversary in 2028 we will perform all Ludwig van Beethoven’s symphonies in Bern and document them on video. The videos capture the lively interpretations, led by Meret Lüthi from the concertmaster's podium, and transport our Beethoven cosmos to the whole world via digital channels.

Accompany our journey to Beethoven and invest in the future of the orchestra! Become part of our Beethoven community and receive unique personal impressions and gifts!

Impression eines Probenbesuchs:

«Einzigartig während der Proben ist das Erkunden unterschiedlicher Interpretationen und die «Leitung».
Jedes Orchestermitglied übernimmt Leitungsverantwortung, meldet Ungereimtheiten, kann Wünsche anbringen und ALLE HÖREN ZU, (
«there is a leader in every position»!!!).
In den Konzerten überträgt sich die Spielfreude und Begeisterung der Musizierenden unmittelbar auf das Publikum.
Einer Probe beiwohnen zu können ist Bildung, Freude und Ermutigung, zu Hause selber Musik zu machen und Partituren zu lesen.
