About the country life and glittering harp sounds

Only one week to go to Christmas – a great time to indulge in Beethoven’s Pastoral. In the year 1808 the maestro conducted his sixth symphony as a Christmas “reminder of country life” for a Viennese audience in the grip of a freezing winter. Conductor Teresa Riveiro Böhm also knows what Christmas in Spain is like: joyful anticipation of spring combined with the “shepherds’ songs” of the finale. To begin with there are the shimmering tones of the harp in Saint-Saëns’s Concert Piece, performed true to the original style by the solo harpist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Emmanuel Ceysson


Revolutionary prodigy: the Frenchman elicits unprecedented sounds from his harp with powerful and virtuoso playing. At the age of 22, he was already the principal harpist of the Paris National Opera and subsequently played with legendary orchestras such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic or the New York Met Opera Orchestra.

Recreation - Das Orchester


Recreation is special in many ways: consisting of musicians whose nationalities range from Japan to Venezuela, most of the members received part of their training in Graz. After its formation in 2002, the collective played unique halls such as the Alte Oper Frankfurt and worked with outstanding conductors.

Teresa Riveiro Böhm


Barcelona, Wales, Scotland and Australia: with precision and openness, the Austro-Spanish conductor secures one orchestra invitation after another. After studying violin in Moscow, the Viennese was drawn back to the homeland, where she devoted herself to studying orchestral conducting, among other things.
