#BTHVN2020 with Ilker Arcayürek

“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 op. 20 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.
