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
