This month, from March 7 10 15, 2020, the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (VSO) will be celebrating the 250th birthday of Ludwig Van Beethoven.
The festival will include works composed by Beethoven in a series of eight concerts, as well as a film screening of the BBC Documentary, Nine Symphonies that Changed the World.
Organizers say that the event is a unique opportunity to hear Beethoven’s timeless masterpieces interpreted by world-class artists.
The performances include a recreation of when Beethoven premiered his 5th and 6th Symphonies, the 4th Piano Concerto, and the Choral Fantasy.
The VSO School of Music will also be offering Beethoven: The Immortal — a two-week deep-dive into the story behind the composer, his battles against adversity, and how his life ultimately influenced his compositional process and the music he wrote.
