On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth in 2020, Le Concert Olympique will breathe new life into the sketches of Beethoven’s unfinished 'Tenth symphony'. American-German composer Jens Joneleit has developed a contemporary translation of Beethoven’s intentions.
In addition, the orchestra will play Schubert’s equally unfinished 'Symphony No. 8', whose first two finished parts can frequently be heard in concert halls. However, since the feeling of incompleteness always dominates, Jan Caeyers combines this symphony with Beethoven’s 'Pastoral Symphony'.
