Happy Birthday, Beethoven! Legendary composer, Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Germany in 1770, and to celebrate his 250th Birthday year, we will be starting 2020 with a selection of concerts featuring some of his finest works.
One of the most influential composers in classical music, Beethoven’s work is beautiful, unpredictable and filled with emotion and intellect. Heralded as a master of improvisation, he published his first composition at the age of 12, and went on to produce some of the world’s most famous music, despite increasing deafness in his adult years. His work has influenced music and culture far beyond the world of classical music.
Join us to celebrate, and enjoy smaller ensembles paying tribute in our Chamber Music, Close-up and Lunchtime concerts, as well as performances of some of his greatest works, with the full Orchestra.
