“An die ferne Geliebte” with tenor Ilker Arcayürek
The other Beethoven – that could be the motto of our program concept. While the jubilee’s popularity mainly stems from his symphonies, piano sonatas and string quartets, we pay attention to his lesser known compositions: songs, dances and chamber music. Even if these works are not at the center of his creative work, they still make a decisive contribution to the overall picture of the artist.
For the big anniversary, of course, the septet should not be missing in the program. A chamber music masterpiece that is still a great pleasure even after more than 200 years.
In this program you will discover Beethoven from his cheerful and sentimental side.

BTHVN LCP Arcayürek live excerpts
Mozart’s Viennese years from 1781 were characterized by a great spirit of reform arising from the revolutions in America and France, an aspiring bourgeoisie and secularisation, along with numerous social reforms under Emperor Joseph. The Age of Enlightenment reached its peak in 1789 with the Declaration of Human and Civil Rights in the French National Assembly. Mozart understood like no other how to capture this social shift in his compositions. He was the most fashionable artist with the Emperor, at the royal court, in bourgeois salons and amongst street musicians. Neither later composers nor the pop icons of today have achieved such popularity among all levels of society.
