Musikvereinigung Kelheim

Classicist, philosopher and great revolutionary of music history

Ludwig van Beethoven unites these poles in his work, inspiring countless generations of musicians. Among them are Klazz Brothers & Cuba Percussion, who have dedicated themselves to exploring the borderline between European classical music tradition, jazz in all its varieties and the rhythmic and melodic richness of Cuban music.

With Beethoven meets Cuba, completely new arrangements will be created in 2020 on the occasion of Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday, which will reveal the connections and contrasts of European and Cuban culture in a mainly musical way.

Beethoven has already been the inspiration for the ensemble's arrangements in several of their previous albums. Thus, the "Masters of Classical Crossover" transformed the world-famous Afro-style piano piece "For Elise" into "Afrolise", the first movement from his famous 5th Symphony into "Salsa No. 5" and the final movement from the 9th Symphony, the "Ode to Joy", as a mambo into "Mambophony".

In addition to these rather humorous, virtuosic and sometimes exuberantly danceable arrangements, the arrangement of all three movements of the "Pathetique" or "Moonlight Sonata" illuminates the manifold and varied possibilities of combining classical melodies, harmony and structure with Cuban rhythms and stylistics in a profound and imaginative way. Cha Cha Cha, Bolero, Merengue, Changui or Danzon merge with Ludwig van Beethoven's work to create a unique, new and unheard-of musical language.
