Over the years, Nicolas Waldvogel has captured the imagination of audiences by showing old works in a radically new light. For instance, his double Beethoven program presents familiar works (Beethoven’s 5th and 6th symphonies, Choral Fantasy) in the exact order in which they were first heard in 1808. Likewise, for Charles Ives’s mystical Fourth Symphony, Nicolas Waldvogel called on over two hundred young musicians to evoke the composer's century-old, but still so modern utopia. Other projects have included a Youth Concert dedicated to Mozart's "Haffner" Symphony, concert excerpts of Wagner's Parsifal, and an orchestration of Brahms's Piano Quintet in F minor, entitled "For Clara Schumann".
