Bach and Beethoven: True art remains eternal

Bach-Museum Leipzig | 04109 Leipzig

Today Beethoven and Bach are among the most famous composers worldwide, but how did it come about? The Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung, founded in Leipzig in 1798, provided the decisive basis for this. The exhibition illuminates Leipzig's musical life in the early 19th century and the mutually dependent canonisation of Bach and Beethoven as classics of music. Visitors also learn how the music of Johann Sebastian Bach influenced Beethoven's work.

Bonn Jazzfest

The 2020 Bonn Jazzfest is all about the art of improvisation. Beethoven used improvisation as a creative source for his boundary-busting music; today we encounter it primarily in jazz. In the Bonn Jazzfest concerts, fascinating artists from Germany and abroad seek out promising approaches between the traditional soundscape of classical music and the musical here and now.
