2020 will be Ludwig’s year. The world will celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven, and his native city of Bonn started early with the unveiling of a major exhibition about the composer on 17 December.

While his music is world famous, the figure of Beethoven himself remains enigmatic or – at worst – a lifeless caricature. The exhibition World.Citizen.Music sets out to present Beethoven ‘in the round’ by placing him in the context and against the backdrop of his period. The exhibition is at the Bundeskunsthalle Bonn, in cooperation with the Beethoven-Haus Bonn. 

BOZAR, partnership with the Bundeskunsthalle Bonn, will continue the story by mounting its own exciting ‘out of the box’ exhibition on Beethoven at the Centre for Fine Arts in October 2020. And of course Beethoven will be the main focus in our concert hall with countless performances throughout 2020, with special attention given to his string quartets and vocal works.
