Beethoven 2020 journey – chapter 2
Crisis of Dispair
19 – 21 March 2020, Battersea Arts Centre
This year we launched our Beethoven 2020 Journey, as we explore in unprecedented detail the life of Beethoven – featuring all nine symphonies and more – across eleven events in numerous venues around London. From his early life in the peaceful but forward-thinking town of Bonn to his traumatic later years in Vienna, we will be leaving no stone unturned in our search for who Beethoven really was, and why his music continues to inspire us 250 years after he was born.

Yet again you guys nailed it. You demystify classical music for the common man. That is an art in itself.
