Ezio Bosso is again on the podium of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia’s Orchestra to direct two of Beethoven's most famous symphonies: the Symphony n. 5 and the n. 7, a preview of the 2020 celebrations for the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth.
Bosso, who made his debut in 2017 in Santa Cecilia with Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, is a musician, composer and conductor, known to the public also for television programs promoting classical music.
The Fifth Symphony that opens the concert is one of the most famous in the history of music. Composed between 1804 and 1808, it is characterized by a liveliness and an energy emerging already from the initial theme.
The Symphony n. 7, written between 1811 and 1812, is pervaded by the idea of harmony and joy.
Richard Wagner in The work of art of the future describes this symphony as follows: The symphony is the apotheosis of dance: it is the dance in its supreme essence, the most blissful realization of the movement of the body almost ideally concentrated in the sounds . Beethoven in his works has brought the body into music, implementing the fusion of body and mind.
