19-20 Masterworks Series | Beethoven Discovers America

In 2020, we celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth in 1770. This season celebrates both his musical achievement and his legacy—in America. Beethoven has a grip on the American popular imagination that no other classical composer has achieved. He was a revolutionary in his own day—more like a rockstar than what we think of when we think of classical music. He pushed the boundaries.
