Beethoven Matters - Online Event

250 years since his birth, 2020 should have been resounding with Beethoven. But what precisely has made his music endure all these years and how can we celebrate his legacy from lockdown?

Garsington Opera and the Royal Philharmonic Society announce a special online event celebrating Beethoven. Join us live on YouTube for an expert panel discussion on why 'Beethoven Matters'.

Beethoven Matters - Tuesday 26 May, 6pm
Jessica Duchen (writer & journalist)
Douglas Boyd (Artistic Director)
David Owen Norris (pianist & academic)
Toby Spence (tenor)
Freya Waley-Cohen (composer)

Amid lively discussion, Toby and David will also perform a little of Beethoven’s music and together we will reflect on Beethoven’s enduring spell over musicians and audiences to this day. We’d love you to join us live and contribute your own questions to the panel.

You can watch live (or stream it any time after that) on Garsington Opera's YouTube channel, where you can subscribe to discover all our digital offerings.
