The German city of Bonn, the birthplace of musician Ludwig van Beethoven, celebrates the 250th anniversary of the birth of the famous online and television musician.
The annual Beethoven Memorial Authority in Bonn announced on Monday that the concert led by Maestro Daniel Barenboim with his band at the Bonn Opera will be broadcast on the seventeenth of next month via the Internet and stations on television and radio.
Originally, a regular concert was planned. Beethoven’s fifth symphony will be played, and Barenboim concerto will play the third piano.
December 17th, 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s Baptism Day, and the birth of the famous musician was included in the baptismal record on that day, and the boy may have been born the day before that date.
Beethoven went to the Austrian capital Vienna, where he became famous, and died in 1827.
For his part, Malte Booker, CEO of the Beethoven Anniversary Foundation, said: “What interests us is the sending of a signal from Beethoven, the birthplace of Bonn, despite the restrictions caused by the Corona pandemic.”
Basically, the year of celebration was supposed to end with the quarter-century since Beethoven’s birthday, on his birthday, but due to restrictions related to Corona, parties and events have been canceled and will be postponed to next year.
