How does Louis Andriessen condense all of Beethoven's symphonies into a single movement, and how does Péter Tornyai fill a composition, monumental in orchestration, form and its musical space, with a single musical gesture? Can a symphonic orchestra communicate freely with a string quartet and another symphonic ensemble that "keeps answering” from a recording, as in the Dutch Michel van der Aa's piece?
Beethoven is known to have written nine symphonies. He had plans for a tenth, but... could never write it. Is it possible to reconstruct this tenth symphony from his late sketches and notes? Barry Cooper used these to compile a hypothetical composition. Dispersed over time and not written for the same piece, not necessarily even for a symphony, these sketches were made parallel with the late string quartets. In addition to the first, and the possible "last,” the concert also presents Beethoven's "complete” symphonies. The composition Louis Andriessen wrote in 1970 offers an essence of Beethoven's symphonic work in a single movement.
