Continuing its long-lasting partnership with Abu Dhabi Classics, the Staatskapelle is returning to Abu Dhabi with a unique project together with the legendary pianist Rudolf Buchbinder, who will also be conducting the orchestra for two exceptional evenings. The combination of one of the greatest orchestras of our time with one of the greatest living pianist promises to be the highlight of the 2017-2018 Abu Dhabi Classics season. 

The Staatskapelle Dresden with Rudolf Buchbinder will be performing the complete cycle of five piano concertos by Ludwig van Beethoven. This unique experience will allow the audience to understand and appreciate the art of Beethoven through the genre that represents the best of Viennese classic music. His piano concertos combine the individual expression of the piano with the magnificent and full sound of the orchestra. The genesis of the five piano concertos ranges between 1795 and 1811 and therefore expresses the very spirit of classical music in Vienna at the turn of the century. 

Part 1: Tuesday, December 5
Ludwig van Beethoven - Piano concertos 1 and 5

Part 2: Wednesday, December 6
