Concert and interview download


September 3, 2008
The opening concert at the Beethovenfest in Bonn featured Beethoven's 9th, which at the time was seen as a pointed rejection of Napoleon Bonaparte. The programme also included a Schonberg piece which lashed out at Hitler. Conductor Paavo Jarvi talks about Beethoven, using music to relax, and the difference between US and European orchestras.
