One of our 40th anniversary highlights, our Ludwig van festival celebrates the music and legacy of Beethoven. Each of his nine symphonies is presented in the context of a day of study sessions, talks and a second cycle of symphony transcriptions, together looking at these symphonies with fresh eyes from all sides. We start with Beethoven’s first symphony, a work that clearly established its composer as the inheritor of Haydn’s symphonic legacy. Click here for more info: http://bit.ly/MWwNTr
