Beethoven: Permanent change

This series took place onFrom to
“Art demands of us that we don’t stand still,” Beethoven wrote in a letter to his friend the violinist Karl Holz. This is the spirit that pervades all of his works, which left such a powerful mark on the majority of composers of the nineteenth century and a large part of the twentieth. Characterised by relentless change in the exploration of new directions, his music soon became an archetype of Western music, an emblem of the sound of European culture. To commemorate two-and-a-half centuries since his birth in Bonn, the Fundación Juan March welcomes the “Beethoven year” with an extensive series consisting of his piano and chamber music.
