Born in December 1770 in Bonn, Ludwig van Beethoven first made his mark as a virtuoso pianist. Yet he soon gained renown as an innovative and prolific composer – one of the most influential musicians of all time.
At the height of his fame and creativity, he was forced into a heroic battle against a horrifically creeping deafness. Yet he continued to produce masterworks that remain hugely popular to this day, 250 years on.
This evening we celebrate the life and work of this bold composer with a concert of Beethoven’s works, including his Symphony No. 3 “Eroica” and the “Triple” Concerto, featuring The Symphonia, conducted by Constantine Kitsopoulous, and guest artists The Eroica Trio.
