Escuchen la representación de ‘Fidelio’ de Beethoven por la BBC Philharmonic

«The emotional pitch was high from the outset» (Tim Ashley, The Guardian)
«Juanjo Mena was whipping the faster speeds along with all the breakneck enthusiasm worthy of a modern Beethoven expert, and the performance ended with him bouncing on the rostrum and excitement reaching dizzy heights. It was quite a night.» (Robert Beale, Manchester Evening News)
«Juanjo Mena gleaned from the pages of Beethoven’s score a powerfully emotional and dramatic intensity, extracting tenderness, jealousy, greed, love and joy in impressive quantity.» (Andrew King, Bachtrack)

Juanjo Mena led the BBC Philharmonic in a high-voltage performance of Beethoven’s only opera at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, and the concert was greeted with highly favourable reviews.  You can listen to the performance on BBC Radio 3 at 14:00 UK time on Thursday 21st May, and it will be available here until 21st June.
