BTHVN 250/16

Rathaus Stadt Troisdorf | 53840 Troisdorf

The tragedy of his creeping hearing loss unites the composer Ludwig van Beethoven with all people with hearing impairments and tinnitus. On his 250th birthday, the artistic installation BTHVN 250/16 draws attention to the fact that this community of fate is considerable. 16 percent of the population suffer from hearing loss and ringing in the ears. Some of what we know about Beethoven is easier to explain when we understand what the loss of hearing means for people.

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.
