On the eve of the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli, Diego Matheuz conducts Beethoven’s music to Goethe’s Egmont, a score that positively crackles with the play’s rich themes of love and heroic defiance. The composer’s Ninth Symphony, with its message of brotherhood and unity, makes a fitting concert companion.
