For the composer’s 250th anniversary, few of the live concerts which had been planned to take place in 2020 actually happened during “Beethoven for One”. 1014 invited cellist and Beethoven-expert Jia Kim, composer and conductor Carl Christian Bettendorf, and composer and choreographer Miro Magloire to discuss, how and why his music was a revolution during his lifetime and whether it remains relevant today.
