The Staatskapelle Weimar, founded in 1491, is one of the oldest, most illustrious orchestras in the world. Its history is closely associated to some of the world’s best-known musicians—Johann Hummel, Franz Liszt, Richard Strauss and many others. In 1756, Duchess Anna Amalia made the orchestra the primary musical institution of the city of Weimar, Germany. The orchestra will showcase the wonderous works of Beethoven, including Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Coriolan Overture and Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor.
