Composing after Beethoven




Beethoven's music is a manifold inspirational source for artists and, in particular, for composers. While preparing for the Beethoven anniversary in 2020, we startet  establishing a bibliography and collection of compositions that refer to Beethoven, either explicitly by their title or inexplicitly by quotes and allusions. A list containing already more than 100 titles gives an initial overview of compositions from 1870 until today that Beethoven plays a major role for. The purpose of this collection of materials is to inspire the creation of programmes during music making as well as to serve as a basis for a scientific evaluation that is planned to start in 2020.
