This month, Alan Gilbert travels to Germany to join the Gewandhausorchester for their annual New Year’s celebration concerts from Dec 29-31. Onstage, they perform Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, joined by the MDR Rundfunkchor, GewandhausChor, and GewandhausKinderchor, along with soprano Genia Kühmeier, alto Gerhild Romberger, tenor Klaus Florian Vogt, and bass John Relyea.
Regarding this occasion, Gilbert states: “The Gewandhausorchester Leipzig has a long tradition of playing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony at the end of the year. Especially after having done that piece with them on tour three years ago, it’s thrilling to be going back to take part in this annual celebration.”
