Performance Details

Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor


Habibi Jeder Baum spricht
Beethoven Symphony No. 5
Beethoven Symphony No. 6 (“Pastoral”)

On March 12, 2020, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra performed its BeethovenNOW: Symphonies 5 & 6 program to an empty Verizon Hall, sharing a live broadcast with listeners across the globe—just before the City of Philadelphia’s impending shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

One year later, we invite you to join us for a rebroadcast of this now-historic performance, dedicated to those who lost their lives due to the pandemic. This special presentation is available free of charge on the Orchestra’s Digital Stage.

Pre-Concert Conversation
Ticket holders will be invited to participate in a live pre-concert conversation and Q&A with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Orchestra President and CEO Matías Tarnopolsky on Friday, March 12, 2021, at 7:30 PM ET.

About the music

This performance includes Beethoven's Symphonies Nos. 5 and 6 and the world premiere of Iman Habibi’s Jeder Baum spricht, a Philadelphia Orchestra commission.

Program Notes

Please note: All Digital Stage events begin with a performance premiere, streaming in real time. Following the performance premiere, the concert will be available for ticket holders to watch on demand for one week.
