Visiting Beethoven

Client: Het Concertgebouw / Tracks
Services: Concept Development
Premiere: 28 February 2019


Visiting Beethoven is an innovative concert aimed at a young/new audience. It is a first encounter with Beethoven. Music is the most important storyteller, supported by text, video, and lighting. The script is inspired by the biography of Beethoven written by Jan Caeyers. It is not the goal to be historically correct, but mainly to give an impression of the person Beethoven. The music is linked to events from his life and brings the listener into the spirit of Vienna around the year 1800.

Visiting Beethoven has a version of 60 minutes and a version of 85 minutes with intermission.
