The OBC joins the events commemorating the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth, ‎offering five programmes with fifteen works by the Bonn composer.‎

The first programme, under the baton of the great expert in music from the Classical period ‎and principal guest conductor of the OBC, Jan Willem de Vriend, is a recreation of the concert ‎performed by Beethoven himself at the Imperial Palace of Vienna on 27 February 1814: the ‎premiere of the fresh and light-hearted Eighth Symphony and the performance of three ‎portfolio works. Firstly, the Seventh Symphony (which premiered with great success two ‎months earlier), followed by a vocal trio composed at the time he was receiving classes from ‎the legendary Antonio Salieri and, finally, the spectacular Victory Symphony - including ‎cannon shots and bell peals - which overshadowed the performance of the rest of the ‎programme.‎
