"Yearning for the Soul" - Liszt's Second Beethoven Cantata

Kirche St. Hippolytus | 53840 Troisdorf

Starts: 5:00 pm

 

The great festive cantata "Zur Secularfeier Beethoven" (Beethoven Cantata No. 2) by Franz Liszt from 1870 is the focus of the concert by the Troisdorf Figural Choir (Figuralchor Troisdorf) and Capella Vocale at St. Hippolytus. Unlike Liszt's cantata for the inauguration of the Beethoven monument in 1845, this work is heard very rarely and its performance is an absolute rarity. We will also hear Brahms' late choral work "Nänie" and the premiere of M. Veltman’s "Today is life" on the suicide of Otto Weininger in 1903 in the house where Beethoven died.

Music as a Source of Inspiration – Beethoven in Contemporary Art

Mittelrhein-Museum | 56068 Koblenz

The musical oeuvre of Ludwig van Beethoven has time and again inspired painters, graphic artists and visual artists to create their own works. The past few decades, in particular, have witnessed a growing willingness to address Beethoven's music in the fine arts. Works by 20th and 21st-century artists will allow visitors to experience a quasi-synesthetic direct combination of music and fine art.
