JUBILEE CONCERT of Beethoven Anniversary Year 2020
Beethoven was a modern artist who followed his very own will of expression, who did not compose primarily for the glory of God or the glorification of a prince, but raised his musical voice to express the confidence of a peaceful and joyful human coexistence. His music is an appeal to humanity and is based on the conviction that there is a moral core that unites us all to live together. Originally conceived as the closing concert of the Beethoven Jubilee Year BTHVN 2020, the anniversary concert together with the Long Beethoven Night on December 16, 2020, as birthday highlights, marks the start of the extension.
