They have been working on the Festival Beethoven250 to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth, with a season that's brimming with his pieces.
Lovers of classical music will be in for a real treat in 2020, since it’s the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven in December 1770. One of the concert halls that’s taking part in this initiative is the Auditori, which has organised an extensive programme under the name Festival Beethoven250, which will include the German composer’s greatest pieces with international ensembles of various sizes, from chamber ensembles to symphony orchestras.
Festival Beethoven250 will run from 11 January to 3 July, in various spaces at L’Auditori on various dates and at different times and in the Museu de la Música. The series will start off with a marathon of chamber concerts with amazing musicians, lasting from 10 am to midnight. After that, the programme contains magnificent performances, including ones from the Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya, who will be joined by an international star each day, such as soprano Michaela Kaune, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, violinist María Dueñas and conductor and pianist Rudolf Buchbinder, as well as many others. As well as classical concerts, there will also be new pieces such as David Lang’s opera, Prisoners of the State and a piece by sound artist Christine Sun Kim, who has been deaf since birth.
Tickets come at a range of prices, including free activities such as the marathon on the first day. You can look at the whole programme and buy your tickets on the Auditori website.
