Orpheus Chamber Orchestra stands up for justice and freedom in this homage to courageous voices in Beethoven's Egmont. Beethoven, an unyielding critic of despots, channeled his ardor and rage into music for Goethe’s historical drama about a local hero defying foreign occupiers.
Liev Schreiber narrates an incisive new English translation by Philip Boehm, while the clarion voice of Karen Slack and Orpheus illuminate the eternal truths of Egmont.
