LvB – Ladies versus Beethoven

At Konserthuset, we are properly celebrating the anniversary of Beethoven – and an orchestral festival is at the centre of the festivities!

Over the course of two intensive weeks, we will present all nine symphonies, performed by the resident Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and six other Swedish orchestras. Beethoven’s symphonies comprise a unique and infinite universe that holds incredible discoveries for the first-time listener, but which can also be explored over and over again. At this festival, the symphonies will be placed in a new light through presentations with pieces by women composers from the nineteenth century to our own era. We call this festival Ladies versus Beethoven (LvB) – not as a comparison between women composers and Beethoven, but rather as a joint tribute to western classical music.

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and Chief Conductor Sakari Oramo will perform Symphonies No. 1, 5 and 9. In order of appearance, guest orchestras include the Gävle Symphony Orchestra, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Swedish Orchestra, the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. In total, just over 600 musicians will participate in the festival.
