Why listen to Beethoven?
How did Beethoven gain his rank among the most popular classical composers? Where does the international success come from - why isn't he only popular in Germany and Austria?
For the composer’s 250th anniversary, few of the live concerts which had been planned to take place in 2020 actually happened. 1014 was able to celebrate the composer with the socially distanced concert series “Beethoven for One” in November 2020 and offers this digital discussion with three Beethoven-enthusiasts for anybody who wants to get a deeper insight into the meaning of the work and the life of the internationally acclaimed musical genius from Bonn, Germany.
1014 invited Cellist and Beethoven-expert Jia Kim, Columbia University’s Carl Christian Bettendorf, and composer and choreographer Miro Magloire to discuss how and why his music was a revolution during his lifetime and remains so relevant today.
