Prometheus on Tour
Ludwig van Beethoven:
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 5 in E flat major op. 73
Excerpts from the ballet "The Creatures of Prometheus" op. 43
with texts by Alain Claude Sulzer (2019)
Beethoven composed the electrifying music for his ballet “The Creatures of Prometheus” under the influence of the French Revolution. The Basel author Alain Claude Sulzer has written his own version of the text, which is performed by the actor Peter Simonischek.
The soloist also incorporates Beethoven's 5th piano concerto in a completely new way, often acting as a further voice of the powerful orchestra. A task so delicate and requiring such a deft touch is in safe hands with Lars Vogt.
