FRM | Beethoven 2020

A City Lush with Beethoven


Paavo Järvi, conductor of Bremen German Chamber Philharmonic – currently considered Germany’s best – once declared: ‘Beethoven, that’s God!’ This kind of fascination may explain why Beethoven’s anniversary year 2020 is being ushered in before the year has even started. This September, Alte Oper presents the impressive music festival Eroica with talks, workshops, a children’s day and concerts dedicated to Beethoven’s eponymous symphony devoted to democracy. Next year, then, Alte Oper will have the honour to give the stage to Järvi’s orchestra, to perform all nine Beethoven symphonies. Other 2020 highlights include Simon Rattle’s ensemble, to fly in from London, and Austrian artist-in-residence Rudolf Buchbinder. Our magazine’s pick, for this year still, is Kronberg Academy. The reputable talent mill from the Taunus will perform all of Beethoven’s violin and cello sonatas as part of its Searching for Ludwig festival.

Kronberg is a small but affluent suburb of Frankfurt, located at the foot of the placid Taunus ridge. Formerly known for its artists’ colony of painters, which remains to this day, the cultural gem of today is the Kronberg Academy. The school is a veritable mill for young musical talents, offering highlevel violin and cello master classes and captivating audiences with small-but-fine classical concerts. This year, too, five famous virtuosos and educators Ana Chumachenco, Mauricio Fuks, Mihaela Martin, Gerhard Schulz and Pavel Vernikov will be giving violin lessons to students coming from all over the world. Every two years, the Kronberg Academy Festival also enchants the audience with a special musical firework, this year in the focus: Ludwig van Beethoven (Sep–Oct 2019) (loe).
