TO BEETHOVEN – AUTUMN 2020

It is a great pleasure to present the programme of the autumn season 2020 that will lead us to the 250th anniversary of Beethoven on December 16. The series of chamber music concerts will present a wide range of the master’s works – in contrast to his contemporary composers, and also to the ones belonging to our present time. Due to the restrictions for choirs caused by the Corona-pandemic we must postpone the performance of the 9th symphony – Ode to joy! – but we will definitely celebrate the birthday with a lot of joy and great music!

OUR INITIATIVES 2020

TO BEETHOVEN –
OR NOT TO BEETHOVEN

Ludwig van Beethoven is one of the greatest musical geniuses the world has ever seen. He was born on the 16th of December 1770, and the whole musical world are now looking forward to celebrating his 250th anniversary through his unique musical creations! He, and his compositions are the most often played classical music in the whole world – year after year!

MIDTÅSEN CULTURE FESTIVAL

When Ludwig van Beethoven moved to Vienna in 1792 he was already renowned as a virtuoso performer on the Hammerklavier. We therefore find it appropriate and important to present this instrument to our audience during the anniversary. In four concerts you may listen to it as a solo instrument and in sonatas for cello and violin. It’s also nice to programme his opus 1 for Piano Trio, and quartets and quintets – both from the master himself and of composers that were inspired by his compositions. The opening concert of the festival is named after one of the mostly played musical pieces in the world – The Moonlight Sonata – and we do admit that we got goosebumps when we realized there is a full moon on that very evening. What a way to mark his great jubilee!

MIDTÅSEN CHILDREN FESTIVAL

The scenery at Midtåsen has been of great inspiration for making the various performances for children. Since we started the children festival in 2007, there are now 11 performances created especially for Midtåsen as a cultural arena. All the elements are there actually – it’s just to find them and to put them together to the most exciting performances. Ludwig van Beethoven was also inspired by nature. While celebrating his 250th anniversary he is so fortunate to meet his namesake Ludvig by the beautiful pond in the wood. In the other performance you can meet Hänsel und Gretel enjoying themselves singing and dancing until they are sent into the deep forest to pick berries……
