Fathom Events and BY Experience are thrilled to present the Berlin Philharmonic for the first time on U.S. cinema screens with Berlin Philharmonic: The Beethoven Project in select cinemas nationwide for an extraordinary one-day event on Saturday, March 19. In the Beethoven Project, “one of the greatest conductors of all time,” (BBC Music Magazine), Sir Simon Rattle leads the Berlin Philharmonic presenting Beethoven’s masterful brilliance in two tremendously expressive works: the inspired Symphony No. 4 and the impassioned Symphony No. 7. The journey of the symphonies is paralleled by the journey of the composer’s life not only creating works that are renowned and beloved the world over, but forming the framework for more than a century of musical expression and experience. The unique musical program uses the juxtaposition between the more classical, sunny and cheerful Symphony No. 4 and the powerful, almost ecstatic, Symphony No. 7 to create a not-to-be-missed event exploring a musical rollercoaster led by one of today’s most outstanding conductors. Bringing everything full circle, audience will be treated to the documentary, Living with Beethoven, which features interviews from Rattle and members of the Philharmonic as they take an intimate look at Beethoven’s musical masterpieces and their approach to the composer’s genius.
