Beethoven and his Rhenish Musician Colleagues

Beethoven-Haus Bonn | 53111 Bonn

During his youth in Bonn, the young organist, court musician and composer Beethoven enjoyed a very fruitful musical life that had a decisive influence on him. However, his contemporaries, their musical activities and their compositions remain in the shadow of the great composer. The international conference takes up this desideratum and places Beethoven in new or altered contexts.

prometheus dis.order

Tonhalle Düsseldorf | 40479 Düsseldorf

According to myth, Prometheus formed the first humans: defective pre-series models. Ludwig van Beethoven's ballet music "The creatures of Prometheus" illustrates these awkward attempts to walk. For BTHVN 2020, the Tonhalle puts the Titan in the center and puts it on the couch. In a spectacular production by Nick & Clemens Prokop (TYE Shows) the real reason for the failure becomes obvious. And Beethoven's music becomes a rollercoaster ride through a world in disorder.
