As we approach 2020, we will be celebrating the 250th Birth Anniversary of the icon Ludwig van Beethoven. Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the classical and romantic eras in classical music, he remains one of the most recognized and influential musicians of this period, and is considered to be one of the greatest composers of all time.’
His compositions—loud, long and exciting—will soon reverberate along our corridors and walls, and to be part of the Beethoven symphonic experience—as listener or competitor—would be a dream-come-true for everyone who loves classical music.
In commemoration of this composer’s milestone of two and a half centuries, we will be hosting two major events for next year:
The first will be a Piano Festival which will feature Beethoven’s works alongside standard piano literature on 16 and 23 February 2020. Auditions for the Festival will be on December 2019 (Venue and exact date TBA).
The second will be a Beethoven Piano Competition. See the required repertoire in this LIST (Click Here). Final mechanics, and requirements will be released later this year.
