Berlin Philmarmonic bringing ‘The Beethoven Project’ to cinemas for March 19 event

One of the greatest conductors of all time, Sir Simon Rattle, leads the Berlin Philharmonic in showcasing Beethoven’s masterful brilliance with two tremendously expressive works: the inspired Symphony No. 4 and the impassioned Symphony No. 7. Presented by Fathom Events and BY Experience, Berlin Philharmonic: The Beethoven Project will be in select movie theaters across the U.S. for a one-day event on Saturday, March 19 at 12:55 p.m. local time. The event will also take cinema audiences behind the scenes, with a never-before-seen documentary offering an intimate portrait of Beethoven’s nine symphonies and an overview of the Berlin Philharmonic’s approach to the composer’s genius works, featuring exclusive interviews with Rattle and members of the Philharmonic.

“It is a privilege to bring these incredible musicians and this phenomenal music to a new kind of stage on the big screen. We are thrilled to work with BY Experience, offering cinema audiences across the country access to the Berlin Philharmonic and Sir Simon Rattle with two of Beethoven’s outstanding compositions.” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey.

Creating an unforgettable evening of musical expression directed by one of today’s most outstanding conductors, The Beethoven Project features the juxtaposition between the more classical and cheerful Symphony No. 4 and the powerful, almost ecstatic Symphony No. 7.

“The Berlin Philharmonic is the world’s preeminent orchestra, and it is an honor to be presenting them to U.S. cinema audiences with ‘The Beethoven Project,’” said Julie Borchard-Young, co-President of BY Experience. “We are very proud to be working with the Berlin Philharmonic and conductor Sir Simon Rattle, to share the experience of Beethoven’s brilliant symphonic masterpieces in U.S. cinemas for the first time ever.”
