Welcome!

Ludwig van Beethoven is the most frequently performed of all classical composers. He was also a radical artist who constantly reinvented himself, expanded the boundaries of music and posed questions to society. Even today he inspires people all over the world. BTHVN2020 will celebrate the 250th anniversary of his birth by mobilising people and opening up a wide range of perspectives – both on and about Beethoven more

Klavierrecitals - Javier Perianes

Javier Perianes is considered one of the leading Spanish pianists.

In 2019 the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) declared him to the "artist of the year 2019". In the Beethoven-Haus he was already as a chamber musician within the BTHVN WOCHE.

For his appearance in our chamber music series he has received a

Discussion Concert 'The Bonn Beethoven'

Kammermusiksaal des Beethoven-Hauses Bonn | 53111 Bonn

on the occasion of the anniversary of his first performance in 1778

and the anniversary of his death in 1827

 

Beethoven spent the first 22 years of his life in Bonn, his birthplace.

This period had a decisive influence on the young musician. Many compositions were written in Bonn which are far less present in concert life than the works from the Viennese period - wrongly, as the evening will show.
