Born in 1770 into an age of political turmoil and social unrest, Beethoven wrote music marked by the spirit of revolution. Wigmore Hall’s season-long exploration of the composer’s timeless art (covering all of his instrumental and chamber works) is certain to reveal fresh insights, first and foremost in a special opening weekend festival.

Throughout 2019/20, Wigmore will feature complete surveys of the composer’s piano, violin, and cello sonatas; the complete string quartets; the complete piano trios; and the complete string trios. We also begin a two-season series of Beethoven’s piano variations, while there are red-letter Beethoven dates too.

Our Beethoven Celebration has been made possible thanks to a lead gift from André and Rosalie Hoffmann, the Foyle Foundation, and additional support from the Beethoven Circle.
