In 2020 orchestras around the globe are set to mark the 250th year since the birth of Beethoven. The National Symphony Orchestra form their own tribute with a three-week festival, performing a number of special concerts to celebrate the indelible mark made by the legendary genius on the history of music. On June 5th and 6th the NSO performs Beethoven's enormous Fourth and electrifying Seventh symphonies, as well as the Overture to his Egmont set from 1787.
Conducting the orchestra is Gianandrea Noseda, NSO's musical director since the 2017-18 season. The Italian's illustrious career includes stints as principal conductor with the BBC Philharmonic, music director for the Teatro Regio do Torino in Italy and as principal guest conductor for the London Symphony and Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. He also serves as the Artistic Director for Italy's Stresa Festival and has been bestowed the honor of Cavaliere Ufficiale al Merito della Repubblica Italiana for his services to music in Italy.
