On March 12, 2020, The Philadelphia Orchestra, led by Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin, performed its BeethovenNOW: Symphonies 5 & 6 program to an empty Verizon Hall for live broadcast. The original concert was cancelled due to COVID-19. The program opened with the world premiere of Iman Habibi’s “Jeder Baum spricht,” written in dialogue with the two Beethoven symphonies.
“As The Philadelphia Orchestra suspends concerts and events in response to COVID-19, we offer this special concert—performed to an empty Verizon Hall—to be streamed live to audiences throughout Philadelphia and around the world,” said Orchestra President and CEO Matías Tarnopolsky. “To share music with our communities in this way speaks beautifully to the power of music to connect us all—even when we cannot be together in the concert hall. We are very grateful to WRTI for their long-term support of the Orchestra on the radio and to WHYY for responding so warmly and swiftly in the current circumstances.”
The March 12–14 concerts are sponsored by Elia D. Buck and Caroline B. Rogers.
