“A thrilling ode to Beethoven” Limelight

“[Their Beethoven symphonies are] a stimulating, exhilarating experience” Gramophone

Formed in 1987, the skilled Flanders-based orchestra Anima Eterna Brugge plays on authentic period instruments that capture the tone colours of Beethoven’s Vienna.

Viennese-style woodwind instruments, natural horns, trumpets without valves, violins with thick gut strings—all instruments used by the orchestra are replicas of the ones used in the composer’s time. Some are even originals. To identify Beethoven’s final version of score, the musicians have conducted an immense amount of research. They use the Viennese pitch, which is slightly higher than the one widely used today, resulting in a more dramatic sound.

The orchestra will perform two symphonies by Beethoven in the first concert: the Third “Eroica” Symphony and the Seventh Symphony—once described as “the Apotheosis of Dance” by Richard Wagner. Travel back to the composer’s time, listen to the authentic sounds of his works, and celebrate the grand birthday of one of history’s greatest music masters.
