Ludwig van Beethoven


 

The works of Ludwig van Beethoven, Germany's greatest composer, are played throughout the world. At the tender age of 12 he was already creating sonatas and symphonies which to this day form the basis of every good musical education. The house where he was born in December 1770 has become the symbol of Bonn. Many of the city's musical events are dedicated to its most gifted son and music fans from all over the world every year come to Bonn's Beethoven festivals.

"Beethoven Pastoral Project” launched at COP23

As part of the World Climate Change Conference COP23 in Bonn, the Beethoven Jubilaeums Gesellschaft (Beethoven Anniversary Society) announces a first major project for Beethoven Year 2020. The "Beethoven Pastoral Project” invites artists around the world to establish a network and join forces, to make their own interpretations of Ludwig van Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony, and through their creativity shape a powerful statement about environmental protection and sustainable development - for a better world for all of us!

In 2020 the world will celebrate the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven. Today the City of Beethoven is a UNO city and seat of the UN's Climate Change Secretariat. Ensembles and individual artist from around the world are invited to perform Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony on June 5th, 2020, the United Nations World Environment Day. Before this, they are asked to share their artistic engagement with this work on the project website, linking this to the objectives of the Paris Climate Change Agreement with a statement about the protection of the environment.

The project is supported by the General Secretary of the United Nations, António Guterres.
