Jazz at Berlin Philharmonic: Beethoven Remix

Berliner Philharmonie | 10785 Berlin

Two current trends on the jazz scene are on display in this special Beethoven evening at the Philharmonie Berlin: On the one hand, the rediscovery and meaningful implementation of classical music beyond earlier crossover or third stream paths. On the other, a renewed appetite for large ensembles, thus tying into the big band era, which ended in the 1940s and 1950s more due to economic than artistic reasons.

Minona

Theater am Bismarckplatz | 93047 Regensburg

The Beethoven Year 2020 starts at the Regensburg Theatre with the world premiere of the opera "Minona" by the Estonian composer Jüri Reinvere, who is already well known in Germany in the field of symphonic music. With "Minona", he introduces himself to the German opera audience for the first time.

On the occasion of Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday, the opera is dedicated to the fate of Minona von Stackelberg. Evidence suggests that she is Beethoven's biological daughter.

Beethoven! (Premiere)

Theater Krefeld | 47798 Krefeld

A ballet about Beethoven: choreographer Robert North shows us the creative artist, the ingenious composer with great ideas on current affairs and burdensome experiences in life, the vulnerable idealist clinging to the utopia of a better world, personified by a dancer, pianist and actor, and illuminates life-changing situations, embedded in an exciting chapter of European history.

Music: Beethoven, Bach, John Cage, André Parfenov
