3SAT reports on RE-SOUND Beethoven

On December 3, 2016, 3SAT ran a feature on the Orchester Wiener Akademie and its director Martin Haselböck reporting on the concert series RE-SOUND Beethoven in which the orchestral works of L.v. Beethoven were presented in their historical performance practice in the original staging rooms of Beethovenʼs time. The project is based on Stefan Weinzierlʼs research on the room acoustics and symphonic presentation practice during the Beethoven era (Excerpt).
