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

Beethoven Mystery XXL - Competition for children

Bayerischer Rundfunk, Funkhaus München | 80300 München

What's up with Beethoven? It's the middle of the night: the ingenious composer is sitting at his piano by candlelight. His hair is dripping wet and there's a pool of water on the floor. The room is pretty chaotic, he has just completed his 62nd move and the boxes are still half unpacked. Someone knocks on the door. What happened? Was Beethoven playing too loudly? Was he rude to the neighbour? Or is there a dark secret behind it all?
