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

ANIMATO: Beethovens "Folksongs"

Collegium Leoninum | 53111 Bonn

Hearing and recognizing with heart and mind - that is the goal of the series "Animato". In the now extended Beethoven Year, four outstanding young artists are "thinking aloud" about Beethoven's most important solo instruments: the violin, the cello, the voice and of course the piano.
