INTRODUCTION

Premiered between 1800 and 1824, Beethoven’s nine symphonies completely revolutionised the art form. Invested with profound intellectual struggle, explosive passion and supreme innovation, the full Beethoven Cycle is all-powerful yet accessible to all – expert or not, you will surely recognise at least one or two themes of these magnificent symphonies.

On five consecutive days, the charismatic Venezuelan maestro Gustavo Dudamel and the legendary Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela (SBSOV) will perform together in Hong Kong for the first time, bringing audiences a complete cycle of Beethoven’s symphonies, two of Beethoven’s best-loved overtures, as well as an extensive series of education and community outreach activities celebrating the spirit of El Sistema.

Playful, instinctive and irrepressible, Maestro Dudamel actively communicates his joy for music-making across four continents, and inspires both audiences and musicians of all ages. Once a youth orchestra, the SBSOV is now a world-class ensemble in its own right, touring the world's greatest concert halls as an ambassador for Venezuela’s unique system of musical education, El Sistema, where Dudamel’s talent was discovered and nurtured.

The ground-breaking energy of this Beethoven Cycle, embodied by the ardour of Dudamel and this Venezuelan orchestra (SBSOV was named after the country’s liberator Simón Bolívar), will lead you on a five day journey of soaring emotion and humanity.
