“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.” This diary entry from Ludwig van Beethoven says everything there is to say about music, don’t you think?
But there is certainly a lot more to say about the music of Ludwig van Beethoven – or at least that is the principle underlying this year’s Kronberg Academy Festival “Searching for Ludwig”, which is set to take place from 25 September to 1 October 2019. Join us in discovering more about the great composer and his music at this major festival on the “eve” of his anniversary year.

In a total of 21 concerts, 74 soloists and four orchestras will present works from all of Beethoven’s creative periods as well as works from composers who inspired him or were influenced by him. There will likewise be opportunities to hear music written about the “Titan” himself, with commissioned works and premieres all centring on Beethoven. A vibrant musical extravaganza!
Priority booking is open to members of the Friends of Kronberg Academy until 12 July. Not yet a member? For information, benefits and membership applications visit: www.kronbergacademy.de/en/friends
