Beethoven Festival Weekend

Saturday 14 - Sunday 15 September 2019

Leading artists take part in a wide-ranging opening weekend to kick off the season-long Beethoven celebration. These artists offer an intensive experience of Beethoven’s music viewed from varied perspectives – delving into areas from his own health to composers who influenced him and those whom he in turn influenced – with several appearances by an innovative ensemble that regularly underlines connections between the old and the new.
