Why do Horn Players Put Their Hand in the Instrument?

"Fidelio" in the Tonhalle? Of course, normally there is Beethoven's only opera on stage. But our music director is convinced that it is also suitable for a semi-staged performance in a concert hall. Actually, he had wanted to perform the opera in spring 2020, but Corona intervened; Järvi said at the time that he regretted no cancellation more than this one. Now the performance will take place after all, with remarkable texts in between: Director Eva Buchmann has found numerous passages in Beethoven's letters that can be related to "Fidelio". She thus shows the work as a kind of dialogue between the work and its creator; a dialogue that is about loneliness, about revolution – and of course about love.
