2020 February 10 until 14

On the occasion of Beethoven's anniversary in 2020, the Beethoven-Archiv is hosting an international conference on "Beethoven-Perspectives" in order to bring together leading international scholars in the field of Beethoven research as well as promising young researchers. The aim of the conference is not only to give an overall picture of current Beethoven research, but also to develop new perspectives, to discuss well-known or new desiderata, and last but not least to present Beethoven as a lively (and constantly changing) topic of research. Five main symposia will include the following topics: "Political Beethoven", "A global Beethoven?", "Beethoven in Bonn", "Creative Beethoven", and "Beethoven's Reception of other Composers". In addition, the Academy Project "Beethovens Werkstatt" is organizing the symposium "Sketches as Workshop Documents: Creative Processes in Comparison". Free papers on topics related to current Beethoven research will deepen all main symposia and extend and enrich the range of the conference program.

Four evening events will be staged in cooperation with Deutschlandfunk (Cologne). 

We would like to thank the Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien (BKM) for funding the conference.

2019 December 17 until 2020 April 26

An exhibition of the Bundeskunsthalle in co-operation with the Beethoven-Haus Bonn (venue: Bundeskunsthalle; Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 4, 53113 Bonn)

The multidisciplinary exhibition refers to Beethoven's global relevance and how the composer is perceived around the world. It brings to life the political and historical background from around 1800 as well as the different living conditions when society stood at the threshold from feudalism to the civic era. At the same time, Beethoven is presented in the historic and cultural context of a fundamentally changing society, thus illustrating the question of Beethoven's self-perception and self-staging as a "free artist". In this connection, the generally known image of a lonesome music genius is to be challenged in order to direct the focus on the complex network of relations Beethoven maintained with his contemporaries. Beethoven's oeuvre is presented based on randomly selected major works that document his artistic evolution and corroborate the trend-setting style and tremendous effect his compositions had.

The exhibition is set up chronologically and illustrates the crucial events in the composer's life and work, disruptions and problems included. It was explicitly developed for the general public and no musical knowledge or skills are required.

2019 December 17 until 2020 April 26

No other Beethoven painting is as famous as the portrait from Joseph Stieler (1781-1858), showing the composer holding the manuscript of the Missa Solemnis. It is one of the most known items of the Beethoven-Haus collection and as such a perfect choice for a special exhibition to introduce the anniversary year 2020.

By means of original paintings and archived items, the exhibition is to explain the history behind this important Beethoven portrait and how it fits into the overall context of presenting notable public figures from German politics, society and culture of the 19th century. Another exhibition aim is to show the multi-faceted impact of the portrait – an impact that began when Beethoven was still alive and that is still ongoing. It has resulted in a huge number of various art works, from oil paintings to video installations, from kitsch items to dealing with Beethoven and his oeuvre in a serious way. All these derivative works confirm the portrait's everlasting and special appeal.

It is one of the most known items of the Beethoven-Haus collection and as such a perfect choice for a special exhibition to introduce the anniversary year 2020.

By means of original paintings and archived items, the exhibition is to explain the history behind this important Beethoven portrait and how it fits into the overall context of presenting notable public figures from German politics, society and culture of the 19th century. Another exhibition aim is to show the multi-faceted impact of the portrait – an impact that began when Beethoven was still alive and that is still ongoing. It has resulted in a huge number of various art works, from oil paintings to video installations, from kitsch items to dealing with Beethoven and his oeuvre in a serious way. All these derivative works confirm the portrait's everlasting and special appeal.

An exhibition of the Bundeskunsthalle in co-operation with the Beethoven-Haus Bonn (venue: Bundeskunsthalle; Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 4, 53113 Bonn)

The multidisciplinary exhibition refers to Beethoven's global relevance and how the composer is perceived around the world. It brings to life the political and historical background from around 1800 as well as the different living conditions when society stood at the threshold from feudalism to the civic era. At the same time, Beethoven is presented in the historic and cultural context of a fundamentally changing society, thus illustrating the question of Beethoven's self-perception and self-staging as a "free artist". In this connection, the generally known image of a lonesome music genius is to be challenged in order to direct the focus on the complex network of relations Beethoven maintained with his contemporaries. Beethoven's oeuvre is presented based on randomly selected major works that document his artistic evolution and corroborate the trend-setting style and tremendous effect his compositions had.

The exhibition is set up chronologically and illustrates the crucial events in the composer's life and work, disruptions and problems included. It was explicitly developed for the general public and no musical knowledge or skills are required.

Als der junge Schlossverwalter Sebastian Reiser nach Wien gelangt, bereitet der große Komponist Ludwig van Beethoven gerade die Uraufführung seiner neunten Sinfonie vor. Die ganze Stadt fiebert dem Konzert im Kärntnertortheater entgegen. Doch die Aufführung ist umstritten – nicht nur bei den konservativen Musikenthusiasten, sondern auch bei verbotenen Burschenschaften. Reiser bekommt die Chance, im Orchester mitzuwirken, und gerät in ein gefährliches Geflecht aus Intrigen und geheimer Politik.

Sie erwartet ein unterhaltsamer Krimi-Abend mit Musikbeispielen aus der Geschichte der klassischen Musik.

Dr. Friedemann Pestel (Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg) und Dr. Silvia Kargl (Historisches Archiv der Wiener Philharmoniker) geben unter Verwendung von Dokumenten aus dem Historischen Archiv der Wiener Philharmoniker Einblicke in die Entwicklung von sinfonischen Aufführungen von der Zeit Beethovens in Wien bis zu den internationalen Gesamtaufführungszyklen seiner Sinfonien. Der 250. Geburtstag des Komponisten gibt Anlass zum Beleuchten der Anknüpfungspunkte an Beethoven. Dieser starb zwar 15 Jahre vor der Gründung der Wiener Philharmoniker 1842, doch wirkten mehrere Gründungsmitglieder nicht zuletzt bereits bei der legendären Uraufführung der 9. Sinfonie 1824 mit. Beethovens 7. Sinfonie erklang schließlich im Gründungskonzert der Wiener Philharmoniker 1842. In Folge wirft der Vortrag Schlaglichter auf die Unterstützung der Wiener Philharmoniker für die Witwe von Beethovens Neffen und Erben Karl sowie auf die Beethoven-Dirigenten seit dem 19. Jahrhundert. Ein besonderer Schwerpunkt liegt auf den Beethoven-Sinfonien-Zyklen vom ersten Zyklus in Wien 1918 bis zu den Tourneen.

Beethoven war graecophil. Er teilte die Homer-Begeisterung seiner Zeit, interessierte sich für die griechische Sprache und Literatur und rezipierte die griechische Antike idealisierend. Die Odyssee war eines der wichtigsten Bücher für Beethoven. Sie diente ihm als Kompositionsvorlage und als Vorbild für sein Künstler- und Bildungsideal.

Seit über sieben Jahren beschäftigt sich der Rezitator Lutz Görner fast ausschließlich mit dem großen Franz Liszt. In diesem Zusammenhang stieß er auf die Biografie Liszts über seinen Jugendfreund Frédéric Chopin, die er ein Jahr nach dessen Tod in Weimar verfasste. Ein singulärer Vorgang in der Welt der Komponisten. Eine wunderbare, eine tiefe, eine berührende Biografie aus der Lutz Görner an diesem Abend lesen wird. Die WAZ schrieb: "... Eine Biografie aus dem Geist der Sprache, der Pointe, der überraschenden Wendungen und der anekdotischen Situation zu erzählen, kann Görner wie kaum ein zweiter seiner Generation."

Begleitet wird der Rezitator von Nadia Singer, einer 28-jährigen russischen Pianistin mit deutschen Wurzeln, die sich, wie die Presse meint "... auf dem Sprung zur Weltkarriere befindet." Sie wird die Kompositionen des polnisch-französischen Meisters spielen, dem im Gegensatz zu Franz Liszt nur ein kurzes Leben gegönnt war. Nadia Singer gewann den Internationalen Rachmaninow- Wettbewerb 2013 in Frankfurt/M. und erarbeitet seit 2014 mit Lutz Görner den Kosmos Liszt. Ein Projekt, das die Klaviermusik des 19. Jahrhunderts rund um Franz Liszt beinhaltet und 2021 beendet sein wird.

Freuen Sie sich auf einen kurzweiligen, anregenden und unterhaltsamen Abend voll von unvergesslicher Poesie in Tönen und Worten.

No other Beethoven painting is as famous as the portrait from Joseph Stieler (1781-1858), showing the composer holding the manuscript of the Missa Solemnis. It is one of the most known items of the Beethoven-Haus collection and as such a perfect choice for a special exhibition to introduce the anniversary year 2020.

By means of original paintings and archived items, the exhibition is to explain the history behind this important Beethoven portrait and how it fits into the overall context of presenting notable public figures from German politics, society and culture of the 19th century. Another exhibition aim is to show the multi-faceted impact of the portrait – an impact that began when Beethoven was still alive and that is still ongoing. It has resulted in a huge number of various art works, from oil paintings to video installations, from kitsch items to dealing with Beethoven and his oeuvre in a serious way. All these derivative works confirm the portrait's everlasting and special appeal.

An exhibition of the Bundeskunsthalle in co-operation with the Beethoven-Haus Bonn (venue: Bundeskunsthalle; Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 4, 53113 Bonn)

The multidisciplinary exhibition refers to Beethoven's global relevance and how the composer is perceived around the world. It brings to life the political and historical background from around 1800 as well as the different living conditions when society stood at the threshold from feudalism to the civic era. At the same time, Beethoven is presented in the historic and cultural context of a fundamentally changing society, thus illustrating the question of Beethoven's self-perception and self-staging as a "free artist". In this connection, the generally known image of a lonesome music genius is to be challenged in order to direct the focus on the complex network of relations Beethoven maintained with his contemporaries. Beethoven's oeuvre is presented based on randomly selected major works that document his artistic evolution and corroborate the trend-setting style and tremendous effect his compositions had.

The exhibition is set up chronologically and illustrates the crucial events in the composer's life and work, disruptions and problems included. It was explicitly developed for the general public and no musical knowledge or skills are required.
