Special Presentation ‘BTHVN2020 – Beethoven Discovery Year’
PRESENTED BY BEETHOVEN ANNIVERSARY SOCIETY
Ludwig van Beethoven is regarded as the most classical of composers. But there is much more to Beethoven than his music: he was a radical artist who constantly reinvented himself, broadened the boundaries of music and challenged society. Visionary, creative, humane, freedom-loving and politically-inspired to this day – worldwide. In 2020, Germany and the entire world will celebrate the 250th anniversary of his birth. Under the BTHVN2020 brand, the ‘Beethoven discovery year’ mobilises people and opens up diverse perspectives - on Beethoven and on topics related with his personality.
